OFFICE OF DEVELOPMENT
Alumni and friends of Penn State New Kensington can contribute to the University by establishing an endowment or by contributing to already established campus endowments or funds. Gifts can be in the form of a one-time gift in cash or securities, or a pledge commitment to be paid over a specified number of years. Gifts can also be created through bequests, or in the form of a deferred gift designed to provide a life income for the donor or his or her dependents.
GIVING TO PENN STATE
No matter how you give — through corporations and foundations; outright gifts of cash or stocks; planned giving — you share with other Penn State supporters one important reward: the personal satisfaction from making an investment in the University's future.

Donna will assist you in creating a gift that meets your personal interests and matches the needs of the University. Call 724-334-6057 or e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Board of Trustees has established minimum support levels for various types of endowments to guarantee that income will be adequate to achieve the benefactor's intent — now and in the future. These endowments may be named in recognition of the generosity and vision of the donors, or in honor or memory of persons of the donors' choice. Named endowments stand in perpetuity as landmarks.

Exclusive Membership for Donors of $25,000 to Campus
The Arch Recognition Society was founded in 2010 and named for the Arch that stands at the front entrance to the campus. Membership is reserved for campus supporters who have contributed a total of $25,000 to the campus
Designed by Henry Noestheden and donated by Alcoa, the aluminum arch has been a campus landmark since 1976. A symbol of the history and spirit of the campus, the Arch is a significant tribute to the campus’s achievements. It was the inspiration for the creation of the new society that supports the needs and programs of Penn State New Kensington students.
Twenty-three alumni and friends of Penn State New Kensington were inducted as charter members Sept. 24, 2010, into the Arch Society at the Chancellor's Gala. Seven families and individuals were honored at the gala: Chuck and Trudie Booth; Bill and Claudia Harbaugh; Jim and Eileen Kopelman; Patrick and Mardelle Kopnicky; Capt. N.F. "Red" Stein; Sally Yemans; and Barb Arnold. Each received a print of a painting of the arch by Bud Gibbons, professor of visual arts at the campus. Three members were inducted posthumously: Elizabeth Blissell, Hazel Hug and Herman Israel.
Membership is open to alumni and friends of the campus. For more information, contact Donna Speer, Director of Development, at 724-334-6057.
