Crunch Time: University Family Drive Extended, Needs Your Help

Posted on 4/20/2017 2:29:04 PM

It’s crunch time! The 2017 University Family Drive is close to the goal! If you haven’t yet made your gift, please do so today! You could be the person who pushes us over our goal of 800 donors! The drive has been extended to the close of business on Monday, April 24.

If you’re unsure about making a gift, perhaps testimony from a student about the impact of your work and the importance of philanthropy will help (see the video above). Mary Chey was recently featured at the fourth annual Celebration of Endowed Scholarships. She has made not one but two senior class gifts. Join her and hundreds of your colleagues by making an investment in our students today.

With the newly staggered campus mail schedule, we want to be sure your gift is received and counted before the drive closes. The Annual Giving Office staff would be happy to come to you to pick up your contribution. If you’d like to arrange for that to happen, please call 7-5555 or e-mail Don’t forget, you can also give online.

To the volunteers and to those who have already given, the University Advancement Division offers you our most sincere thanks on behalf of the IUP students who will benefit from your generosity. Please plan to join us for the University Family Victory Reception on Wednesday, April 26 between 1:00 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. in the Blue Room of John Sutton Hall. Remarks will begin at 3:00 p.m.
