Oak Grove Society

  • Oak Grove Society sealThe Oak Grove Society recognizes those who have made estate gifts to the Foundation for IUP or reported they are remembering the Foundation in their future estate and financial plans. It also recognizes people who have made gifts of $1 million or more over the course of their tenure of giving to IUP.

    The Oak Grove is the heart of the original campus—the main focal point around which the university is built. Rooted in deep tradition, the Oak Grove continues to serve as a central gathering place for the university community for leisurely moments as well as for special activities and noteworthy events. Likewise, the membership of the Oak Grove Society is built upon the foundation of support from bequests, charitable gift annuities, charitable trusts, life insurance, and other gifts that individuals have made or intend to make in the future through their estate and financial plans.

    The following membership list includes active members who have made gifts or informed the Foundation for IUP of their gift intentions.  It also includes those deceased members who have fulfilled their gift commitments during the timeframe of this report.
