On March 29, NAU celebrated its fifth annual NAU Giving Day during which ASNAU raised $1,322, out of the total $567,911. The money will be put toward assistive devices for students with disabilities. Donations were brought in from students, President José Luis Cruz Rivera, NAU Alumni Association and University Leadership Program.

After speaking with students about obstacles preventing them from obtaining personal assistive devices, ASNAU raised money on NAU Giving Day to offer financial support to students in need.

ASNAU Student Body President Brendan Trachsel explained the Lumberjack community came together this year to beat the Giving Day record for funds raised. 

“Donating what you can, spreading the word by being an ambassador, creating a fund to be a part of Giving Day and serving your community are all ways people contribute every year," Trachsel said. 

According to ASNAU's Giving Day website, the funds will go to students who need financial assistance to purchase costly devices such as hearing aids, cognitive aids and mobility aids.

More information on the Giving Day fund can be found on the Impact Funds page.
