IUP Loyalty SocietyIf you have given to IUP's Annual Fund for five years running, you are a member of the newly established Loyalty Society.

Established this year, the IUP Loyalty Society recognizes committed IUP donors whose annual gifts serve as the foundation for universitywide growth. Those who have given to any area of the university for five or more consecutive fiscal years are part of the Loyalty Society. 

"We are kicking off the society with more than 2,000 members this year. It's astounding--and gratifying," Bill Speidel, vice president for University Advancement, said. "Having a five-year commitment from that many people strengthens IUP's financial future, of course, but it also demonstrates that we have a loyal following that believes in what we do--provide the world with the students who are prepared to change it and make it better." 

Alumni, friends, and employees who have yet to renew their commitment to IUP through the Annual Fund and want to be counted in the new Loyalty Society have until June 30 to make a gift
