Spring 2020 Class Gift

This campaign ended on June 30, 2020, but you can still make a gift to Kutztown University of Pennsylvania by clicking here!

Congratulations on your graduation! Given the challenges you've faced and overcome this semester, you now deserve to kick back and celebrate this massive accomplishment! Show your Golden Bear pride by making a gift to support future KU students, and we'll send YOU some special swag to ensure that even after this semester ends, you #StayGolden.

You may not realize it, but a lot of the great experiences you had at KU were available because alumni, parents and friends of the university cared enough to support your education and interests. They funded scholarships, technology, professional experience grants, workspaces, research, and so much more.

To say congratulations on graduating, the Kutztown University Foundation will be installing a commemorative Class of 2020 2'x2' brick, the first of it's kind for class gift campaign's at KU, in the Alumni Plaza. We have hopes to complete this installation by Homecoming 2020, but will keep you updated given our current constraints due to COVID-19.


HOW DOES THE CLASS GIFT CAMPAIGN WORK?

  • Make a gift of $20.20 or more and receive your one-of-a-kind maroon and gold KU Class of 2020 T-shirt, as well as the offers below. (while supplies last)
  • Make a gift of $10.00 or more and receive a special KU Class of 2020 drink koozie, as well as the offer below. (while supplies last)
  • All gifts make a difference. You can even make a gift of at least $5.00 to support your class gift campaign.
  • As stated above, the KU Foundation will be installing a commemorative Class of 2020 2'x2' brick, the first of it's kind for class gift campaign's at KU, in Alumni Plaza.
  • An image of Alumni Plaza where the class brick will be placed can be seen below.

HOW CAN I GET EVEN MORE INVOLVED?

  • Become an Advocate (sign and share the page) to make sure that support for KU goes as far and wide as our community can spread it!
  • Upload a Personal Plea video encouraging your classmates to give. Even one Personal Plea can generate widespread support through your network.

It's our way to say thank you for your commitment to #StayGolden and your way to show how passionate you are about supporting the Golden Bear experience. Class gift donors will even be recognized during commencement.


WHERE DOES MY DONATION GO?

This year, we are asking seniors to donate to "Bears Band Together." Like you may be, incoming and current underclassmen are facing huge challenges during this time. We are asking you to direct your donation to the Bears Band Together fund, which will help to offset many of these unexpected expenses for the entire KU community. As many students face unexpected financial hardships like the loss of employment, we anticipate an increase in requests for this kind of funding. Your support is appreciated by not only the University and Foundation but also those students who desperately need assistance now more than ever.

You also have the opportunity to support any of the four major colleges, the KU Annual Fund and KU Athletics, if you choose to change your designation. During this time, we have opened additional gift designation areas for your class gift. I’m pleased to offer you the option to make a gift to areas that support these needs, including the Multicultural Center, Women’s Center General Fund, and LGBTQ+ Resource Center. You can even split your designation between the Bears Band Together fund and another above option of your choosing!

HOW CAN I MAKE MY GIFT?

You can donate online anytime or mail a check to the KU Foundation directly. You can even use leftover Bears Bucks to make your gift! Kutztown University Foundation & Alumni Engagement Offices, 15197 Kutztown Rd, Kutztown, PA 19530.

DOES MY $5, $10 or $20.20 REALLY MAKE A DIFFERENCE?

Yes, yes and yes! Every gift matters. When we add your gift to those of your classmates, we should raise over $10,000 to support your fellow students.

WHERE DO I GET UPDATES?

Any updates for the 2020 Class Gift campaign will be posted directly on this page. However, you can visit the websites and also follow the social media accounts below for more additional updates as well as many other exciting events and initiatives still to come!

I MADE MY GIFT, HOW DO I GET MY T-SHIRT AND KOOZIE?

The T-shirt and koozie will be mailed to you. NOTE: The address you enter on the donation page MUST match the billing address for your credit/debit card. If you need your cord or pin mailed to a different address, just email myers@kuf.org after you make your gift. Please expect a shipping time of 4-6 weeks due to our limited resources at this time. These offers are available while supplies last.

WHERE CAN I GET INFORMATION ON THE COMMENCEMENT CEREMONIES?

The best place for updates is on the commencement page of the Kutztown University website. You can get there by clicking here.


HOW DO I "JOIN THE ROAR"?

We want to give you a proper "Welcome to the Roar" now that you are a graduate. By clicking the highlighted words in the previous sentence, you can view your introduction into the KU alumni family and also have another chance at getting a free graduation gift!
