Giving Back Before They Go

More than 375 Bloomsburg University spring 2016 graduates participated in this year’s Senior Class Gift Campaign. That’s just over 30% of the graduating class!

Each student who made a senior class gift was given a philanthropy cord to wear on graduation day (like the ones highlighted in the photo below). The cords allowed the seniors who participated to proudly display their giving and inspire their fellow graduates to also consider giving back.

“One of the goals of the It’s Personal campaign is to create a culture of philanthropy at our university,” said Jerome Dvorak, Executive Director of the Bloomsburg University Foundation. "Each senior who made a gift is laying a block in the foundation that will build that culture, and we are very grateful for their support.”
