Members of the IUP Leadership Society 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.

The IUP Loyalty Society recognizes in 2016–17 3,352 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.
