Ernst and Young Fund for Excellence in Accounting Education 2020
It’s that time of year again — ASU matching gifts season! ASU is very important to each of us for many different reasons but these reasons probably include great memories, educational experiences and a network of wonderful relationships. Beyond it’s importance to each of us individually, ASU is also very important to EY as well, continuing to help us meet our Nextwave strategy by providing top talent to our growing firm.
Once a year we reach out to all of you and ask for your support in giving back to the school that gives us all so much. Our support is greatly needed and appreciated by the W. P. Carey School of Business, and it goes a long way in enhancing the EY brand on campus. Here’s a few highlights of our relationship with ASU this past year:
► As of November 2020, there are 240 Sun Devil alumni working at EY.
► A total of 22 Sun Devils joined our ranks as new staff hires in 2020, across the country. In addition, 27 staff and interns have already accepted their offers to join us in 2021.
► We achieved an amazing offer acceptance rate of 84% in 2020 from ASU students whom we extended intern and staff offers to.
► We are currently partnering with ASU on exciting diversity & inclusiveness initiatives, engaging local community colleges to mentor and guide underrepresented minority students, promote our profession and better prepare transfer students for the ASU environment with EY’s guidance.
► ASU operates the EY Writing Program, to help students in ASU’s Master’s programs elevate their written communication and build new strengths with writing assignments and verbal presentations. Funding for this program was provided by the Ernst and Young Fund for Excellence in Accounting Education.
I want to personally thank those who have supported the university in the past and taken advantage of the Matching Gifts for Higher Education Program sponsored by the Ernst & Young Foundation, which doubles the impact of your gift.
I hope you will join me in supporting ASU through an increased contribution this year. Our contributions play an important part in giving EY additional brand impact on campus!
