Fuel Wonder



Wonder Changes the World

Wonder may begin with the spark of an idea, but it’s ignited when others help make it happen. By giving to a university that thrives on wonder, you light the fire in our students, faculty and staff to do even more, to dream and create today and well into tomorrow, to imagine bigger and, in turn, fuel a better future for the world. Together we can help those who will go on to accomplish the extraordinary.

What Wonder Creates:

  • A holistic student experience that increases equity and access

  • Medical research and scientific breakthroughs that change lives

  • Creative inquiry that enriches the broader community

The Front Porch

At the University of Arizona, we know that moments of wonder don’t always happen in the classroom, which is why we’re deepening our commitment to providing an environment that enriches the lives of students, faculty and community members alike. With your support, this is where envelope-pushing artists will debut their work, where athletes of every skill level will get a chance to play, where our campus will connect to the world around us — and where true community will take shape.
