Change Our World, Pick Your Passion, $25K Donor Challenge, 2016IUP students are our world's future leaders and solutionists. You can change our world by supporting them during the Change Our World donor challenge, today only (June 8, 2016). Between 6:00 a.m. and midnight, your gift to the Foundation for IUP to any scholarship or program will be doubled through a match pool of up to $25,000.  

2016 Change World CompositeVisit the challenge website to see examples of alumni and faculty members who are now changing our world and how current IUP students aspire to do so. 

The goal of the challenge is twofold. First, of course, is to raise meaningful support for our students and our campus community. The second is to increase the number of individual donors and further our progress towards an important performance metric*. So, if you’ve yet to make a gift to the Foundation for IUP this fiscal year, now’s the time to give and make double the difference to any IUP program or scholarship that is important to you before the matching funds are claimed.

If you’ve already supported the Foundation for IUP via the University Family Drive or other means, thank you! Alumni, friends, employees, students, and parents 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! You’ll find links on the challenge website to share the page via email or social media using #ChangeOurWorld.

*Your gift to the Foundation for IUP will bring IUP closer to attaining critical performance funding from the State System.
