Penn State Fayette, The Eberly Campus is fortunate to have a strong history of philanthropy and a proud tradition of community support that have been instrumental in building the campus over the past 55-plus years. The most recent demonstration of this support was through a six-year capital campaign during which $4.2 million was raised from alumni and friends of Penn State Fayette.
Our students are the central focus of all we do at the campus. Being located in one of the most economically distressed areas of the Commonwealth has posed a unique challenge to our students, many of whom must maintain jobs in order to afford tuition. According to the latest statistics, over 90% of Penn State Fayette students qualify for some type of financial aid, and nearly half of our students are the first generation in their family to attend college. In addition, 54% of our students have unmet financial need, and the average educational debt for graduating students with loans is more than $27,000.
Your support in continuing the tradition of philanthropy at Penn State Fayette is instrumental to ensuring an exceptional educational opportunity for our students. No gift is too small, and there are a variety of ways in which to make a gift. The following pages provide greater detail on how you can make a difference for the students at Penn State Fayette.
Our development team would be pleased to work with you to structure a gift to help ensure a better future for our students. We invite you to contact Deborah Black at 724-430-4190 or [email protected] for additional information.
Thank you in advance for your support!
