Congratulations alumni, faculty, staff, students and friends of IUP! You’ve met and exceeded the $15k In A Day Giving Challenge goal.
Ric Clark, a 1980 graduate of the Eberly College of Business has an exciting proposition for you. As an entrepreneur turned Senior Managing Partner and CEO of global real estate holdings for Brookfield Asset Management, Ric credits his success to his IUP experience and education. Conscious of the rising costs associated with education coupled with the disruption of educational funding, Ric wants to support IUP students in a meaningful way—and he’s challenging you to join him.
At a time when IUP only receives about 26% of its budget from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, Ric understands that your support, and in turn his, will make a difference in ensuring that IUP can continue to provide students the resources to become nurses, safety professionals, teachers, linguists, social workers, scientists, musicians, and business leaders who enable our society to progress into tomorrow.
Need another reason to help IUP raise $20k In A Day?
IUP is competing for performance funding from the commonwealth. If the number of people that support IUP increases this year, the university stands to be rewarded with additional funding. The same holds true if the sum total dollars of charitable support increases. Last year, because of IUP’s progress towards established performance measures across the university, IUP received a performance award of $4.2 million. This is a team effort, and everyone plays an important role.
