ENRICHING THE EDUCATIONAL EXPERIENCE A MESSAGE FROM TINA MENGINE, VICE PRESIDENT FOR UNIVERSITY ADVANCEMENT For the third straight year, Edinboro University’s friends,
alumni, faculty and staff have shown more philanthropic support than ever before. Thanks to so many of you – 4,540 donors, to be specific – nearly $4.8 million was raised from July 1, 2014, to June 30, 2015, to help EU students succeed. It was the University’s best-ever fundraising year, and I can’t thank you all enough for your generosity and commitment to our students and this institution. Together, we are transforming lives. Every gift, regardless of its size, makes a difference. More than 2,100 students received academic and athletic scholarships. That represents a 39 percent increase over last year. And the generosity did not stop there. We were fortunate to add new health care and physics classrooms as well as a new café to the Porreco College campus thanks to generous donors from our community. Eighty-four percent of Edinboro University undergraduate students received some form of financial aid during the 2014-15 academic year. In addition to government grants and loans, nearly $4 million in institutional scholarships and awards helped students bridge the gap
between financial reality and their educational dreams. As always, more is needed to maintain the high quality and affordability of an Edinboro University education. Gifts made to the University help us ensure that every student is given the opportunity to succeed. These gifts came in many forms, and we hope that you will consider a gift today to enhance academic opportunities, student life, campus growth, and numerous other projects and programs. Together we can provide a bright future full of promise for our students and their families. Thank you for the part you played in our success in 201415. Everything we do is about our students and providing this great institution with the resources to continue changing lives far into the future. We look forward to another amazing year!
