Giving Opportunities >
Shippensburg University has long benefited from the philanthropic generosity of corporations and foundations through the Shippensburg University Foundation and has welcomed their collaboration in teaching and learning, the world of sports and the cultural arts.
Although SU is a state institution, it receives only 33% of its annual operating budget from state appropriations. To assure that the University can continue to fulfill its mission of excellence, we rely on private support from individuals and organizations that share our commitment to quality.
Academic programs, construction and renovation, and scholarships are just a few of Shippensburg University’s priorities for Corporate Giving through the Shippensburg University Foundation. We encourage support from companies, private organizations, and charitable organizations that find the mission of the SU Foundation and the University to be consistent with their philanthropic goals. The SU Foundation works closely with the faculty and staff of the University to stay informed about ongoing programs and projects under development so that we may match potential funding sources with areas of need.
Gifts from corporations and foundations have played a significant role in enabling SU to maintain its leadership position in academics, athletics and the cultural arts.
Corporations and foundations may choose to support SU for a variety of reasons:
- To help ensure that SU continues to educate and graduate new generations of leaders through each of the three academic colleges
- To help ensure that Raider student/athletes are able to compete to the best of their ability To help ensure that the Luhrs Performing Arts Center fulfills its mission to: educate, enlighten and entertain
- To help ensure the presence of the SU Fashion Archives as a teaching, research and exhibition resource for SU students and faculty and members of greater Southcentral Pennsylvania community
In every case, Shippensburg University and Shippensburg University Foundation works with our corporate and foundation partners to make sure that your charitable giving goals are met, and that appropriate recognition is given for your support.
