Endowments and Naming Opportunities

To ensure the continuation of superlative service to alumni and our alma mater in the future, the Penn State Alumni Association has developed a number of endowment and naming opportunities. The earned income from these endowments will provide a new revenue stream for the Alumni Association. In turn, this new revenue stream will help to fund the Alumni Association's programs, events, communications, facilities, and initiatives in support of its mission of connecting alumni to the University and to each other, providing valued services to members, and supporting the University’s larger mission of teaching, research, and service.

Our development staff is here to help you determine the giving opportunities that best fit your interest. and meet your personal financial needs. For questions about giving opportunities, new initiatives, or other ways to support the Alumni Association, please contact Amber Krieg, director of development, at 814-865-5742 or adk5@psu.edu.
