Imagine Unlimited Possibilities for IUP Students during Today’s Giving Challenge

Imagine Unlimited Possibilities graphicFrom 6:00 this morning, April 12, 2018, until midnight tonight, IUP’s Office of Annual Giving is facilitating the #ImagineUnlimited Giving Challenge. That means alumni, students, faculty and staff members, parents, and friends can give their investment a $50,000 supercharge, thanks to the generosity of Terry Serafini, a member of the Class of ’61.

This year’s challenge has something for everyone. You can choose your giving challenge by participating in one or more of these mini-challenges today:

  • Classes of 2008 to 2017: Gifts to any fund will be matched 2:1 until the $15,000 matching pool is met.
  • All Classes 2007 and Earlier: The first college to reach 100 donors will have $150 added to each of the first 100 gifts. Gifts can be made to any fund.
  • Current Students: If 100 freshmen, sophomores, juniors, and seniors make a gift, Serafini will give $10,000 toward Grant Street Park. (This challenge has already been met and exceeded!)
  • Faculty and Staff Members, Parents, and Friends: The fund receiving the highest number of gifts will receive an additional $5,000.

There are also several social media challenges taking place throughout the day. Ten randomly selected social media challenge winners will have $500 added to their gift. Visit the #ImagineUnlimited Giving Challenge website for details.

If you’ve already supported the Foundation for IUP through the University Family Drive or another means, thank you! You can still play a vital role in today’s excitement by sharing news of the giving challenge with everyone in your IUP social media network. Here’s how:

  • Share the Giving Challenge web page using #ImagineUnlimited.
  • Like, share, retweet, and/or comment on the posts you see today across Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. Doing so can increase IUP’s reach exponentially!

Join the challenge! Imagine the ripple effect when students who have benefited from the generosity of hundreds go on to graduate and positively affect the lives of countless people.
