Support IUP

  • When you invest in IUP students everyone benefits.


    While citizens who have a post-secondary education fare better in society, society fares better with more college graduates, including those from IUP. A study by the College Board concluded that children of college graduates are better prepared for school, that college graduates volunteer more in their communities, and college graduates are more likely to participate in elections.

    IUP takes that responsibility seriously. Providing outstanding programs and activities that make a well-rounded education requires financial support far beyond what tuition generates and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania provides. Private charitable gifts for scholarships, up-to-date classroom technology, enhanced library resources, and other campus priorities ensure that deserving students have access to the exceptional experiences at IUP. Thanks to your generosity, IUP can keep its promises to highly motivated students and prepare them what the future holds.

    Many connected to IUP already know this, and it motivates them to make IUP their philanthropic priority each year. Gifts to IUP keep the university strong and its ability to serve students even stronger.

    Your gift makes it happen.
