As the calendar year winds down, private giving to the University ramps up, helping to advance the mission of Penn State and the Smeal College of Business. Every gift makes a difference!
Participation in For the Future: the Campaign for Penn State Students has grown to include thousands of alumni and friends who share a belief in the power of higher education and the role of our college in preparing future leaders. With the conclusion of this seven-year campaign approaching on June 30, 2014, the overall University goal of $2 billion is in sight, but we are not there yet. All gifts of any amount made until that date will bring us closer to our target.
For all who are planning to make a calendar year-end gift to the college, thank you very much for your generous support. You may click here to make a gift online using your credit card. Or, if a gift of appreciated securities is a possibility, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 814-865-7830. My staff and I will work with you to ensure that the stock transaction process goes smoothly, and we are happy to answer any questions you may have about making a gift to Smeal.
For the glory,
Director of Development
The For the Future campaign is a University-wide effort directed toward a shared vision of Penn State as the most comprehensive, student-centered research university in America. The campaign is engaging alumni and friends as partners in achieving six key objectives: ensuring student access and opportunity, enhancing honors education, enriching the student experience, building faculty strength and capacity, fostering discovery and creativity, and sustaining the University’s tradition of quality. The campaign’s top priority is keeping a Penn State degree affordable for students and families.
