Business and Industry Campaign

With almost 8,200 students and nearly 1,000 employees, Shippensburg University has a tremendous impact on the economy of the region.

  • Annually, the University’s students spend a total of more than $68 million in Cumberland County, and $122 million in Pennsylvania.
  • More specifically, the University’s faculty and employees have a total impact on in-state spending of more than $55 million and in Cumberland County more than $14 million each year.
  • Visitors to the University have a total impact in-state annually of more than $9 million, including over $6 million in Cumberland County alone.

As per-capita funding for a college education from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania continues to decline, there is a great need to make up the difference from charitable contributions from the private sector.

By participating in the Business and Industry Campaign, firms can provide much-needed financial support that will enable the University to continue to provide a high-quality education and recruit students and employees to the region.  In short, the more successful SU is, the more successful our regional businesses can be.

Contributions to the Business and Industry Campaign are tax-deductible.  Your gift will be a vote of confidence in one of our region’s most important entities.  For more information about the Business and Industry Campaign, contact the Annual Fund Office at (717) 477-1377.
