Be Part of the Ashesi Solution
Every day, thanks to a global community of advocates, donors, and volunteers, 600 Ashesi students work hard to gain the skills they’ll need to transform their continent. From Ashesi’s launch in 2002, generous and insightful supporters helped develop the curriculum, gave strategic counsel, taught on campus, and helped spread the word. Friends of Ashesi raised the capital to build our world-class campus. We are deeply thankful and humbled by the generosity of our global community.
Today, a vibrant community of supporters helps propel Ashesi forward. Africa needs more from Ashesi– more growth, more high-impact programs, such as engineering, and more scholarships for students in need. There are many ways you can use your skills and passion to support Ashesi’s work.
Your support empowers more young Africans to create progress on their home continent. Every donation to Ashesi, of any amount, is a valued gift. Ashesi’s sustainable model means that the University’s operating expenses are funded by tuition and fees. Your tax deductable gift helps Ashesi grow, launch new programs, and provide scholarships to students in need.

Many people are inspired at the quality of Ashesi students, faculty, and leadership. A highlight of the Annual Ashesi Trip includes visits to Ashesi graduates in their workplaces. As one recent trip participant noted, “Nothing I’d read prepared me for how impressive Ashesi is in real life.”
Our main volunteers help with fundraising. On campus, volunteers also serve as guest lecturers, executives-in-residence, and technical advisors. From home, volunteers can mentor a student or work with the Foundation team. Call us to learn how we can leverage your expertise for Ashesi.
