"Stewardship is the process whereby an institution cares for and protects its philanthropic support – its gifts and those who give them – in a way that responds to the donor's expectations and respects the act of giving."
Tracy G. Savage, National Cathedral School
Our Philanthropic Mission at the Arizona State University Foundation and the ASU Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts is to create, sustain and continually enhance a premier stewardship program that reflects Arizona State University's culture and values and shows our respect and appreciation of our investors. With our stewardship program, Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts, in partnership with ASU Foundation, advocates and embraces an "investors-first" philosophy across all levels of the organization.
Honoring Your Investment through proper stewardship, we can build lasting, meaningful relationships with you, our investors, through the acknowledgement of your investments in a timely and accurate manner; through the recognition of your investments; through the protection, management and transparent accountability of your financial investments; and through sustained communication.
