Great Things Happen From Your Support

  • Charitable gifts in support of IUP came in a variety of ways during 2015-16. Please be sure to view Who Gave to IUP to see a list of those who note their belief in the power of an IUP education by making private gifts, How You Designated Your Gifts to find out what areas of IUP benefit from private support, and Your Gifts at Work to see evidence of what private gifts accomplish.

    Between July 1, 2015, and June 30, 2016, alumni and friends established 11 new scholarships. Thanks to all scholarships available to IUP through the Foundation for IUP, 1,780 students benefited from merit- and need-based awards.

    While IUP looks to alumni and friends for charitable support, 842 members of our own university community invested their philanthropic support into the Foundation for IUP through the University Family Drive. The total is the highest ever, supplying 220 different program and scholarship funds with new support. One hundred ninety-seven employees were new donors, while 37 different departments and offices reached 100 participation.

    IUP Forever

    This presentation acknowledges and thanks you for your generous philanthropic support, but you should know that students benefit from another kind of giving.

    When alumni and friends return to campus extend offers of internships to IUP students, when you offer to help students make professional connections, you are helping them to reach their full potential.

    Hundreds of you do that each and every year. Thank you!

    Beginning at freshman convocation, student hear and learn that their relationship with IUP lasts longer than four years--that it's a lifelong relationship.

    A family.

    You are IUP for life.
