ASU supporters can now text contributions

ALBANY — Albany State University’s Office of Institutional Advancement recently launched a new electronic giving campaign for alumni and friends to show support for the university.

Dubbed “Text 2 Give,” the program allows donors to use their cell phones to make $10 donations to ASU by texting “GORAMS” to 27722.

“ASU now has an official Facebook page with more than 5,000 friends and a Twitter account @ rambucknation, which is rapidly approaching 1,000 followers,” said Demetrius Love, executive director of marketing at ASU. “The ASU website has many upgrades, including a givetoasurams.edu webpage where donors can contribute to individual colleges at the university or to specific programs like the band or to support international travel for students.”

Clifford Porter, vice president for Institutional Advancement at ASU, said he hopes that alumni and friends of ASU will take a couple of minutes to stop, pick up their cell phones or computers and give make a donation.
