There are many ways to support the Askew School


We get it. Most of our students seek careers in the public and nonprofit sector because they want to change the world rather than to make billions of dollars. However, giving back to the Askew School will make a huge difference in the lives of our students. For example, all of the graduate assistantships that we provide to master’s levels students are funded through gifts to the School, as are the bulk of the travel stipends that we provide to students who attend professional and academic conferences. Our ability to expand these essential parts of our programs depends on your gifts.

Most donors make gifts and pledge payments by credit card, automatic bank drafts, or by check. Others take advantage of tax savings that come from giving appreciated stocks, shares of mutual funds or real estate. You may review the options below to find the method that is most convenient for you.
