Make a Difference

USU Moab creates an incredible and exciting opportunity for students, community members, and visitors to learn together, gather, improve together, and support each other.

We couldn't do this without you. No donation is too small. Every penny put toward USU Moab makes a big impact on student lives. For example, the "Moab Community Scholarship Endowment" is a fund that helps local students attend classes and improve their lives. Similarly, the Jeanne VonZastrow Scholarship was established in 2019 for Grand County residents to earn a degree and give back to their community. There's also a Moab Hardship Funds to help students handle emergencies and extenuating circumstances.

You contribute by filling out the information on this page. Or if you are interested in the possibility of supporting our Aggies in Moab in a different philanthropic way (i.e., naming a room or lab) please reach out to Michael Bowen at or (678) 485-9173.

The Endowment will exist in perpetuity. If circumstances arise that render the stated purpose of the Endowment (as set forth herein) illegal, impractical, impossible, or wasteful (e.g., a change in law, the elimination of a USU program, position, or course of study, the persistent unavailability of scholarship recipients that meet the criteria, etc.); then, as set forth in this Solicitation, under such circumstances and in keeping with Utah Code 51-8-501(1), USU may designate a new purpose and/or scholarship selection criteria for the Endowment. Any such new purpose shall be defined by USU's President and USU's President, Vice President Statewide Campuses, and the USU Moab Associate Vice President.

The Endowment will be invested under the direction of the University Public Treasurer. Oversight and advisement of investments will be provided by the USU Investment Advisory Committee in accordance with USU's investment policy.

Distributions from the Endowment shall be governed by USU's Endowment Spending Policy.

An additional 1.5% of the endowment value shall be used to fund the administration of the endowment and USU advancement efforts. All additional gains shall be retained as appreciation and invested along with the corpus to grow the value of the Endowment over time.
