Asbury Announces Second Annual AsburyGives Giving Day

Advancing the mission of Asbury University through giving

March 18, 2024

AsburyGives 2024 is a virtual event combined with on-campus activities from March 21-22, 2024, designed to encourage others to invest in the education of current and future Asburians to ensure they are rooted in a Christian worldview with the highest academic caliber. Customized giving options include: 2024 Scholarships for incoming students, Academic Programs, Biblical Worldview Set Apart Retreats, Cross Cultural Experiences, Intercultural Life, TeamAU Athletics, the Outdoor Venue, and the Reunion Gift/Residence Hall Renovations. Donor matches and challenges will be announced on Giving Day. Visit to learn more.

“Never have I been more confident in the role our students will play in the future of our country, professions, mediating institutions, and the church,” said Asbury University President Kevin Brown. “Your prayers, your support, your giving, and your presence are all a ‘living vote’ for this next generation, and I am of the thoroughgoing conviction that it is worth it.”

More than two-thirds of Asbury’s student-centric endowment is allocated to student scholarships, keeping a high quality, Christian education within easier reach. Asbury students share their gratitude for receiving scholarships.

“As a first-generation college student, I didn’t think I would be able to attend Asbury,” said Finance major Zachary Fazio ’26. “Scholarships from Asbury made college a reality for me. I am one step closer in following my great-grandfather’s footsteps in going to law school and achieving my dreams for the future.”

“Because of the scholarships I’ve gotten from Asbury, my time here has been stress-free,” said Theatre major Jazmyn Lorentzen ’27. “I’m so glad that Asbury made a way through scholarships from donors and financial aid for me to attend my dream school.”

Vice President for Institutional Advancement & Strategic Partnerships Dr. Mark Troyer shares encouragement about the legacy of future Asbury students.

“Giving to Asbury University allows students to be trained as leaders to impact the world for Christ,” Troyer said. “Something that is needed now more than ever.”

The ripple effects of giving are significant, and Asbury prepares students for a variety of professions in which they can thrive as Christ-centered leaders. Alumni such as Dr. Shawn Okpebholo ’03 (Grammy-nominated professor of composition and music theory at Wheaton College-Conservatory of Music) credit their gratitude for their liberal arts education at Asbury.

“Asbury’s music faculty are world-class, and the department is small, which means that I received personalized instruction which was a huge blessing and advantage,” Okpebholo said. “The music professors were influential in cultivating my love for teaching composition and theory. They encouraged me, prayed for me, and served as spiritual mentors and role models for me.”

We invite you to join us for AsburyGives to equip servant leaders to engage the world with the love of Christ in a variety of professions:
