Double Your University Family Gift Today Through Giving Challenge Match

Posted on 4/1/2015 2:33:21 PM

Double Your Money: IUP Giving Challenge, April 2, 2015University family members have enjoyed the opportunity to have their commitments to the Sutton Scholarship fund doubled by the Foundation for IUP since the drive kicked off on March 2, 2015. Today (April 2) up to midnight, EST, the opportunity to make a match-eligible gift to the fund is extended to those outside of our immediate university community. 

If you haven’t yet made your commitment to the University Family Drive, it’s a great day to do so. With only two days left in the drive, you still have time to participate and join the alumni, friends, parents, and students who will make gifts in support of the Sutton Scholarship as part of the Double Your Money Online Giving Challenge*. Visit the challenge website to hear from two students who have benefited from the Sutton Scholarship, and check back often to watch our progress. Today’s goal is to raise $20,000 for the fund. When combined with the match from the Foundation for IUP, that $20,000 will translate into $40,000 for Sutton Scholarship awards. Talk about impact!

If you’ve already supported the Foundation for IUP via the University Family Drive, thank you! You can still be a part of today’s action by sharing the news of our giving challenge with everyone in your IUP network. Together, we can spread awareness and raise meaningful support that will help to educate the next generation’s community leaders and problem solvers!

Don’t forget—your gift to the Foundation for IUP will bring IUP closer to attaining critical performance funding from the Pennsylvania State System. And, if you chose to support the Sutton Scholarship, giving is truly a win-win-win.

If you’d like to support a different program or scholarship fund as a part of the University Family Drive, you can do that, too. Download a form or make your payroll deduction commitment electronically by visiting the University Family Drive website. You can also make a secure credit card gift online.

For assistance, please contact the Office of Annual Giving at 724-357-5555 or iup-giving@iup.edu.

*Please note, only gifts to the Sutton Scholarship are match-eligible.
