The extraordinary generosity of this industry makes it possible for ASA University to develop and deliver education, tools and resources aimed at elevating its workforce. These efforts result in top-notch role-based training, talent development support, and access to a team of ASA-U advisors to help along the way – all of which impact your industry, your business and your legacy.

But our work is far from done. As finding good people becomes a greater challenge, recruitment, development and retention becomes more important than ever. The Karl E. Neupert Endowment Fund plays a critical role in ensuring ASA University remains the industry standard for training and education, and continues to support your efforts to hire the best, elevate them to be better and keep them at your company. That’s why we embarked on a campaign through the end of 2020 to continue to grow the endowment that makes all of our work possible.

We would like to thank the following companies that have already pledged their support to the campaign efforts:

Campaign 2020 donors as of 9/10/2019


As we face the looming labor shortages, the Karl E. Neupert Endowment Fund will be more critical than ever to our industry’s future. To ensure you are prepared to meet the challenges ahead, we have set a goal to add “3 million by 2020” to the fund to expand the support available.

We’d also like to recognize our Founding Donors who were essential to fulfilling the original vision of the endowment and the creation of ASA University. Without these visionaries, ASA-U would not be the valuable and essential resource it is today. Visit to show your support and to take advantage of all ASA University has to offer.
