Time Is Almost Gone: University Family Drive Ends Today

Posted on 4/2/2015 2:05:34 PM

University Family HeartThe University Family Drive is drawing to a close. Today is the final day to make your commitment to the Foundation for IUP as a part of the drive. To date, more than 625 IUP faculty and staff have given this year, taking the University Family Drive to 83 percent of its goal of 750 donors. We can achieve our goal, but not without your help!

To our volunteers and to those who have already given, we offer you our most sincere thanks on behalf of the IUP students that will benefit from your generosity.

If you haven’t yet made your gift, here are a few things to consider:

  • Your tax deductible gift will provide direct support to IUP students and will move IUP closer to attaining critical budget-relieving performance funding from the commonwealth.
  • You can support any one of close to 1,000 different funds within the Foundation for IUP. During this year’s drive, gifts have been directed to 215 different department and program funds across campus. Your gift can be directed to any area of importance to you.
  • External constituents that are considering making their own investment in IUP use faculty and staff participation as an indicator of the overall health of the university. Our gifts show those outside of our community that we believe in our students and the great things that are happening here every day; and in-turn, that we are worthy of their support! 
  • Each of IUP’s six colleges is employing unique matching opportunities for their faculty and staff members. Regardless of your functional area, the Foundation for IUP will match your commitment to the Sutton Scholarship fund dollar for dollar. While faculty and staff members may give at any time of year, these match opportunities are available only during the University Family Drive.
  • Donors and all departments reaching 100 percent participation will be recognized at the Victory Reception on April 13, hosted by President Michael Driscoll.
