Friends of Asian Studies

The Center for Asian Studies (CAS) is excited to announce a new opportunity available to community members and donors wishing to provide long-term support to CU students and programming.

Contributions to the Friends of Asian Studies Flatirons Fund will create an endowment to further the mission of the Center for Asian Studies, which includes supporting research, instruction, and outreach about Asia on the CU-Boulder campus.  The fund will be used at the discretion of the CAS Director, with current priorities including the CAS Annual Symposium (a forum bringing internationally-recognized speakers to Boulder) and scholarships defraying the cost of student travel to Asia for study abroad and internships. 

Contributors to the Friends of Asian Studies Flatirons Fund are asked to make a minimum donation of $500 or pledge two $250 donations over two years. When the Fund balance has reached $10,000, it will be endowed, generating an annual distribution.  Continued donations to the fund beyond the endowment level will be welcome and will enable the Center to enhance its offerings over the coming years.

If you believe that programming and instruction about Asia is critical to the University’s educational mission and strengthens CU’s role as a “global crossroads,” as outlined in the University’s Flagship 2030 vision statement, please consider a donation.
