Congratulations IUP Students!

Last year, more than 935 students made a gift to IUP—the most ever in the history of IUP, many in support of the Grant Street Park Project.

Terry Serafini, a 1961 graduate of IUP, challenged each student class (freshmen, sophomores, juniors, and seniors) to make 100 gifts. IUP students met the challenge—and earned an extra $10,000 toward the project by Terry Serafini.

Thank you to student groups that reached 100 percent participation and donated to the Grant Street Park Project:

  • IUP Student Philanthropy Council
  • IUP Ambassadors
  • IUP Phonathon
  • Gamma Sigma Sigma
  • Phi Sigma Pi
