The IUP community is invited to celebrate
donor generosity on IUP Philanthropy Day this Thursday, February 22, 2018.
Donors that make investments in our
university allow us all to imagine unlimited possibilities. At IUP Philanthropy
Day, faculty, staff, and students are invited to
celebrate their generosity. The celebration takes place from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00
p.m. in the Stapleton Library Commons. Dean Deanne Snavely will lead off the
program at 11:00 a.m. followed by two student speakers.
At the event, you will have the
opportunity to write a thank-you note to an IUP donor to tell them what their
generosity means to you and to our students. While you’re there, enjoy
refreshments and take a turn in the photo booth. There will be free t-shirts
for those that complete a thank-you postcard, while supplies last.
You can continue the conversation and
tell the world why you are thankful for IUP donors on social media using #ImagineUnlimited.
