Change the World

Ideas to achieve the future

We are excited to offer Woodside Community Impact Awards of up to $500 through Change the World 2022 to provide financial support for student-driven initiatives that will make a positive impact on the ASU community and beyond.

About the Woodside Community Impact Award

In 2014, the student team at Changemaker Central submitted a proposal to the Woodside committee to launch a seed-grant program to catalyze student-led community service projects
 
in our local community. With the generous support and guidance provided by Migs Woodside, the initiative has funded 106 student projects for a total of $123,923 in the years since then with many still operating today with renewed student leadership each year. Particularly notable projects include Home Base, Operation Toothbrush, and Swift University. 

In 2017, the Woodside Community Action Grant was recognized as the “Service Project of the Year” at the national Impact Conference, a convening of over 600 students and staff dedicated to cultivating an ethic of community service at universities and colleges.
