Volunteers Energize Campaign

The university’s multiyear capital campaign, Gateways to Opportunity, officially concluded at the end of June.

Not only did alumni and friends of IUP come together as donors to make contributions that far exceeded the original campaign goal of $14 million, but many of them also served as campaign volunteers.

The official total of gifts and pledges raised in the campaign was $21.7 million. Of this amount, more than $7.2 million was for student scholarships, and more than $5.6 million was designated for the Student Opportunity Fund. Both of these initiatives were supported at a level far beyond the original goals set for them.
