APRIL 2023 UPDATE:  A huge THANK YOU to all the CBS donors and supporters during Sun Devil Giving Day 2023!  We were absolutely blown away with generosity of our community.  We had a record breaking 31 donors, with 11 student donors and 20 faculty/staff/alum donors.  Every dime is going to student research opportunities and please know that their gratitude is real! 

Also, this year we were able to use a new Matching Donation program to its fullest.  We are so grateful the anonymous donors who gave us this unique opportunity to increase the impact of donations!  Thank you!

A Note from the Director

Center for Biology and Society Friends and Family,

Each year, ASU (and most other places) offers a Giving Day. In typical years, some of our friends donate funds that we use to directly support student travel and research. But covid has changed the dynamics, and this year the Center for Biology and Society has already utilized more than 72% of our operational budget to provide opportunities for CBS students. These students have traveled to places including Panama, Mexico, Columbia, Amsterdam, as well as multiple location in the United States. It’s great fun to be able to help with student research and watch the amazing results, but we need your help to keep up with increasing needs.  

To continue providing opportunities for our students, please consider helping. Let’s show what our wonderful community can do together. This starts with a matching campaign of up to $5000. Normally, this means any donation is matched dollar-for-dollar, but our match has a fun twist. We call it “equitable matching”: The younger you are, the more your money is worth and the more impact you can have!

This Sun Devil Giving Day all gifts made to CBS will be matched at 1:5 for current students, 1:2 for young alumni, and 1:1 for all other donors up until $5,000. This means if you have $10 to give, it will turn into $10 + $50 = $60. $20 will become $120, and so on.  And for more senior folks, your dollars will still be matched 1:1, so $100 becomes $200. This is an exciting opportunity.  Please do consider helping us. 

And one more note: the Center started officially in 2003, so you will also be helping us move with strength into our third decade!!
