    Unlimited Pride

    Terry Serafini ’61 has provided steady support for IUP students, but his most recent commitment was, perhaps, the most unusual. As part of a $1-million gift, he designated $10,000 to challenge students to support a campus beautification project. “It’s important for today’s philanthropists to create the base for the next generation,” he said, expressing a desire to create a succession plan that supports IUP well into the future.

    Nearly 1,000 students contributed to the Grant Street Park Project, which is transforming Grant Street between 11th Street and Pratt Drive into a pedestrian haven with scenic landscaping. Serafini matched their gifts, doubling the impact while providing students with a real sense of philanthropy’s power and a point of pride that will last a lifetime.
