The IUP Leadership Society was created to recognize the generosity of our alumni, parents, and friends.
Members of this group set the pace for charitable giving and help to provide students with scholarships, research opportunities, and out-of-classroom experiences.
Leadership Society members have chosen to invest in the success of IUP at a higher level. As the leaders of philanthropic giving, they enable IUP students to act as ambassadors for IUP through their travels to competitions, conferences, and performances.
Leadership Society members receive invitations to various campus events and receive special communications from IUP’s president. Members are also recognized in the Foundation for IUP Annual Report and on the IUP Leadership Society plaque displayed on the first floor of Sutton Hall.
Membership levels, renewed annually, are as follows:
Leadership Society-level gifts may be made through any of our established giving methods. Questions about any aspect regarding philanthropic support of IUP should be addressed to the Development Office at 724-357-2324.
The IUP Loyalty Society recognizes in 2012-13 2,777 people whose annual gifts serve as the foundation for universitywide growth. This special community of donors comprises those who have given to IUP for five or more consecutive years. Gifts of any amount to any area of the university qualify donors for membership. Involvement in the society is sustained as long as gifts are made to IUP every fiscal year (July 1 to June 30) without interruption.
