IUP Giving Day: Your One Gift Has Double the Impact

Posted on 3/25/2019 2:59:12 PM

2019 Donor Challenge DayBeginning at midnight today through 11:59 p.m. tonight, IUP’s Office of Annual Giving will facilitate the #IUPGivingDay. Thanks to alumnus Terry Serafini ’61, alumni, students, faculty, staff, parents, and friends have the chance to give their investment a $50,000 supercharge! 

This year’s giving day has something for everyone. They include:

  • Current Students: If 100 freshmen, sophomores, juniors, and seniors make a gift, Mr. Serafini will triple the impact of all gifts of $5 or more made by current students in support to the IUP Food Pantry!
  • Alumni/Faculty/Staff/Parents/Friends: There’s $15,000 up for grabs! Your gift to any fund will be matched 1:1 until the match pool is exhausted.
  • Alumni/Faculty/Staff/Parents/Friends: Any gift to the IUP Food Pantry will be matched 1:1 up to $5,000 to provide additional funding to fuel the Food Pantry project.

There are also several social media challenges taking place throughout the day. Seven randomly selected social media challenge winners will be able to direct up to $1,000 to a fund of their choosing. Visit www.iup.edu/givingday for details.
