Senior Class Gift: Give and Be Noticed at Commencement

Posted on 5/8/2013 5:35:29 PM

Graduating seniors still have time to contribute to the Senior Class Gift, which will be presented to the university at the May 18, 2013, Commencement ceremony.

To date, the initiative is 43 percent to goal and has raised roughly $4,400. A portion of the proceeds will be used to fund state-of-the-art equipment and technology in the new Humanities and Social Sciences building that is scheduled to begin construction in the Fall of 2013. Other gifts have been directed to various departments and areas throughout campus. Gifts from the Class of 2013 can be given in honor of a professor or a parent and enable the class to leave a legacy for future IUP students.

Senior Class Gift cochairs Joshua Acosta (Preprofessional Science, Pre-Med) and Bobby Ratcliffe (Marketing) and the entire Senior Class Gift Committee are asking their fellow classmates to consider making a gift back to IUP as a legacy from the Class of 2013 to future generations of IUP students.

Any gift amount is welcome, but a gift of $20.13 or more will qualify graduates to wear philanthropy cords, a crimson and gray rope adornment to be worn with the cap and gown.

Make a gift now online, or download this pledge form and send or deliver it to the Office of Annual Giving, 412 Sutton Hall.

Deadline for contributing to the fund is May 17, 2013, for May graduates. Questions? Call 724-357-5555.
