University Family Drive Crushes Goal for Third Consecutive Year

Posted on 4/14/2016 1:50:48 PM

University Family Goal Exceeded!IUP’s University Family Drive ended on a high note this week. Thanks to the tremendous work of a strong team of 57 volunteers from across campus, a record-breaking 835 employees made commitments to the Foundation for IUP this year to more than 195 different program and scholarship funds. This brings IUP’s employee participation rate to 55 percent of those actively solicited—the highest it has ever been.

The university community—faculty, staff, and students alike--is doing exceptional work, and this level of commitment is evidence of just how much we believe in one another. Participation continued to be the name of the game, and this year, 41 different areas reached 100 percent (see list below). In total, the impact of our community’s generosity has exceeded $211,000. Philanthropy at this level will profoundly impact the student experience. It also brings us closer to attaining critical performance funding allocations.

On behalf of the students that benefit, thank you.

The victory celebration in recognition of donors, volunteers, and the program areas that reached 100 percent participation will be held Monday, April 18, from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. in the Blue Room in John Sutton Hall. President Michael Driscoll will make remarks at 3:00 p.m.
