FAQ: Why should I give today?


Q: What is Sun Devil Giving Day?

A: Sun Devil Giving Day is a university-wide day of giving which celebrates and encourages philanthropy in support of Arizona State University. All members of the ASU community—alumni, parents, fans, friends, faculty, staff, and students—are invited to give to the areas of ASU they care most about.

Q: Why should I give to the Center for the Study of Religion and Conflict?

A: By connecting your passions with your giving, you help advance the Center's mission to foster transformative research and education and address the world's pressing civic, social and cultural needs. Your gift:

  • Empowers students with a deeper understanding of the role of spirituality in daily life, and provides contexts for division and war as well as for unity and peace.
  • Advances student success by supporting travel and engagement with diverse populations and study the dynamics of religion and conflict or its resolution.
  • Strengthens community through constructive engagement and global dialogue about pluralism and faith.
  • Connects researchers around the world pursuing solutions that promote peace.

Q: Why should I give on Sun Devil Giving Day?

A: To make a statement about your values. When our community comes together to show its collective support, it sends a clear message that we are a valued part of the university community. Our goal is to receive 20 gifts of at least $5 in this 24 hour period. We hope you will be one of them! 

Q: How much should I give?

A: Every gift, regardless of amount, makes a difference! The cumulative power of giving means each gift increases the impact of the previous donation. We are grateful for any support you can give.
