2019 Fundraiser for CRU

Formed in January of 2018, College Republicans United has already grown to be the largest Conservative student organization at Arizona State University. We are upbringing a new generation of Millennial Republicans to revitalize the Conservative base, that has been neglected until the Trump Era. CRU is the only ASU club that is active in getting politicians elected at local, state, and federal levels. 

As an independently established student organization, we are a group of millennials who aim to uphold primary Conservative values while maintaining an active presence in the evolving political dialogue. Our members consistently seek out opportunities for productive dialogue and involvement in our communities.

Our activities consists of weekly meetings at Arizona State University, collaborative journalism, outreach events and invitational speeches by well-known Conservative contributors. We do not discriminate nor push our own views onto members. We provide a diverse line-up of guest speakers with varying opinions, and encourage public discussions afterwards. Currently, our meetings are only held in the Tempe area, but we have begun participating in special events around the larger Phoenix Metro area.

Starting Goal

Total Need: $3,200 based on 2018 figures

- Important Activities : $1,400

Most speakers at College Republicans United are typically local politicians, ASU faculty, or other organizations based in Arizona. Once a semester however we try to bring in a nationally recognized figure. In the Spring of 2018 CRU hosted Dick Heller from the Second Amendment Institute in Washington DC.  

District of Columbia v. Heller, 554 U.S. 570 was a landmark case in which the Supreme Court of the United States held that the 2nd Amendment protects an individuals right to possess a firearm, unconnected with service in a militia, and that Washington DC's handgun ban was unconstitutional. Mr Heller spoke to CRU about his 2nd Amendment views as well as his involvement in the long legal process to the Supreme Court. 

In the fall semester CRU hosted Lauren Chen from CRTV's Roaming Millennial, a popular conservative YouTube star. 

- Food: $755

CRU typically provides food to each meeting.

- Security: $600

Occasionally College Republicans United hosts individuals who are at risk of violence by groups such as ANTIFA and other Domestic Terrorists. Politicians such as Sheriff Joe Arpaio, and Congressmen Andy Biggs have had security concerns at Arizona State. The college unfortunately does not provide resources for conservative speakers and we are required to pay for private security services for our at risk speakers and attendees.

- Advertising: $450

Business cards, flyers, banners, webpage hosting adds up over time. As College Republicans United has become more successful, we have seen an opportunity to continually increase our audience with every event.


As CRU expands outside Arizona State University, our expenses are expected to increase. With your support we can a difference and keep Arizona red!
