Giving Tuesday campaign to benefit Alumni Association student membership

November 19, 2018

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — This Giving Tuesday (Nov. 27) donors can help grow the pride by giving students access to the power of the Penn State alumni network.

Each gift of $15 will provide an annual membership for one student to the Blue & White Society, the student membership of the Penn State Alumni Association. Preference will be given to first-generation and underrepresented students at all Penn State campuses across the Commonwealth.

Donors can give a gift and help students experience the power of the Penn State alumni network. Complete details are available on the official Giving Tuesday campaign page online

The Blue & White Society’s mission is to enhance student life at Penn State through diversified experience, with an emphasis on service to the community, civil leadership, tradition, and outreach while establishing the foundation of a lifelong commitment to the University as members of the Penn State Alumni Association. Led by students, its membership spans the commonwealth and helps to build the relationships between students, faculty, staff, and alumni.

For Penn Staters who graduated after 2009, the University will double the impact of the gift with the GOLD challenge. Any gift will be matched dollar for dollar up to $100 and the funds secured through this challenge will help offset the costs of programs available to Blue & White Society student members.

Established in 1870, the Penn State Alumni Association serves more than 173,000 members and 692,000 alumni worldwide. Its mission is to connect alumni to the University and to each other; provide valued services to members; and support the University’s mission of teaching, research, and service.
