Each year hundreds of Peru State College alumni and friends make the College a top priority by giving annually. These gifts, regardless of size, are greatly appreciated. The first gift of a new graduate is just as important as the sizable contribution of a long-time donor. Both represent a real commitment to Peru State.
Annual gifts can be designated to the College program or a scholarship of your choice. By making an annual gift you are helping to fund a level of excellence not supported through state appropriations. Investing in Peru State College through annual gifts allows you to truly make a difference in the lives of today’s students and offer them opportunities they might not otherwise afford.
Examples of Programs Supported by Annual Giving:
Student Engagement Enhancement Grants, which give students unique experiences in the classroom and beyond, and provide committed and caring faculty with new resources to support learning.
Admissions, the annual fund helps support all prospective student visits and orientations to support Peru State College’s initiative of increasing the student population.
Opportunities through Phonathon
The primary source of annual fund gifts is through the phonathon. This program, which occurs in fall and spring, solicits financial support for the College from alumni and friends by phone. It is the chief source of continuous funding for Foundation student assistance funds. This program is led by current students at Peru State College from freshmen to seniors. They look forward to speaking with alumni and sharing their experiences on campus.
Employer Matching Gifts
Many companies will match or multiply a donation made to charitable organizations through their matching gift programs. To find out if your company participates in such a program, ask your human resources department.
