'Day of Caring' supports Penn State Greater Allegheny

This year Penn State Greater Allegheny will participate in the third annual Day of Giving on Oct. 4. All charitable donations made through http://www.pittsburghgives.org on the Day of Giving will receive a portion of The Pittsburgh Foundation's $500,000 matching pool. Penn State Greater Allegheny donors may designate their gift to one or more of the activities listed below:

-- The eight annual All That's Jazz Scholarship fundraiser, scheduled for Nov. 5;

-- For the Future: The Campaign for Penn State Students, which has a goal to raise $5 million at Penn State Greater Allegheny in support for scholarships, co-curricular activities and professorial scholarship by June of 2014;

-- The Sam Zabec Trustee Matching Scholarship, honoring retired instructor Sam Zabec;

-- Greater Allegheny's international study programs, which expose students to the larger world in which they will soon emerge as leaders; and

-- The Absence Literary Magazine, showcasing the creative side of our students, alumni, faculty, and staff.

Support of these activities will allow Penn State Greater Allegheny to continue to be a positive influence in the lives of students and the growth of the region. Gifts made at any time during the Day of Caring will leverage additional support for the campus, but gifts can be made through this portal at any time.
