You have the power to make change for the things you care about through your University Family gift.
Last year, 837 faculty and staff
contributed to more than 230 different scholarships, departments, and programs
across the university. The ability to designate your gift to almost any area of
campus is one of the important aspects of the University Family Drive. It gives
you the power to support what is most
meaningful. It gives you the ability to place your gifts directly into the hands of students, toward a program, or in support of IUP, in general.
Give now! Or, visit www.iup.edu/universityfamily to find a pledge form.
New this year, general
enhancement and general scholarship funds for each academic department have been created for areas where such funds had not been in place.
The level of generosity our campus community showed last
year provided substantial support. You made a difference in the lives of
countless students through your philanthropy. Here’s how:
In the University Family Drive materials you received in campus mail, you will find mention of Deans Merit Scholarships.
Employee gifts, when combined with gifts from graduating seniors and alumni, provided the funding for 53 such scholarships this academic year. University Family members also provided meaningful
support for the Sutton Scholarship. Along with alumni and others, faculty and staff helped to generate more than $1 million in Sutton
Scholarships in support of 585 students this academic year. This
scholarship provides an opportunity to recruit the best and brightest students
In total, faculty and staff supported more than 78 scholarship funds last
University Family members supported student-athletes in each
of our varsity sports, too. Because of your generosity, teams have more access
to funds for scholarships, equipment, training, and travel.
That’s not all. Each of IUP’s regional campuses, the Military
Resource Center, the Allegheny Arboretum, the Lively Arts, the University Museum, and
countless other department funds benefited from your philanthropy.
This is a team effort and, collectively, we are all making
IUP a better place. It’s the IUP Way.
