ASU employees can designate their United Way donation to ASU Preparatory Academy

October 11, 2013

This year ASU and the United Way have teamed up to make it possible for you to assist in supporting innovation in education by making a contribution to the ASU Preparatory Academy.

ASU Preparatory Academy, an excelling, innovative K-12 public charter school, has achieved high academic gains largely because of the support and generosity of people like you, who donate through United Way.

This year, ASU Preparatory Academies received “A" letter grades from the Arizona Department of Education for the following schools: Polytechnic Elementary, Middle and High Schools and Phoenix High School. The ASU Prep Phoenix Elementary School also received a “B” letter grade.

Through support from the ASU community, ASU Prep is able to offer full-day kindergarten for low-income families and provide students with relevant educational digital technology, after-school programs, music, physical education, art and other resources to support their learning.

By donating all or part of your United Way designation to the ASU Preparatory Academy, you will be investing in the education and success of thousands of future ASU Sun Devils.

Your United Way donation of any amount will support and impact ASU Prep students and help them achieve academic success.

We encourage you to support education and our future Sun Devils by designating your United Way donation to ASU Preparatory Academy.
