OFFICE OF DEVELOPMENT
Hello from the Director,
Penn State New Kensington, located in the Alle-Kiski region, 20 miles northeast of Pittsburgh, is one of 24 campuses of Penn State. Our success of the last 50 years is attributed to supporters who generously contribute time, money, expertise and equipment because they believe in Penn State and the accomplishments of the New Kensington campus.
Our campus philanthropists include alumni, friends, foundations, corporations and other organizations. All gifts, from small cash donations of young alumni, to large planned gifts by more established alumni and friends, create endowments that are so greatly appreciated by our students.
Endowments are the long-term life of our campus support. Endowments are gifts that provide, in perpetuity, dependable support for areas of interest. The University invests the initial gift and allocates a portion of the average annual return to the campus for needs outlined by the donor. The remainder is added to the principal as protection against inflation. Endowments can be set up by the donor for aspects that are of specific interest to them, such as student leadership, scholarships, undergraduate research, athletics, laboratories and classrooms, and faculty support.
Merging donors’ interests with the campus’ goals, endowments are the perfect way to provide substantial support to the quality of student learning, faculty research and campus life.
If you would like more information on how to seed new initiatives and help strengthen our quality educational programs, give me call. We have great ideas on making deferred gifts, providing tax credits and establishing a named endowment with maximum benefits to both you and Penn State New Kensington.
