CONGRATULATIONS CLASS OF 2020!
Congratulations on your upcoming graduation and finishing your degree! Given the challenges you've faced and overcome these past two semesters, you now deserve to kick back and celebrate this massive accomplishment! Show your Golden Bear pride by making a gift to support future KU students, and we'll do something special for your class to ensure that even after this semester ends, you #StayGolden.
You may not realize it, but a lot of the great experiences you had at KU were available because alumni, parents and friends of the university cared enough to support your education and interests. They funded scholarships, technology, professional experience grants, work-spaces, research, and so much more.
To say congratulations on graduating, the Kutztown University Foundation has installed a commemorative Class of 2020 2'x2' brick, the first of it's kind for class gift campaign's at KU, in the Alumni Plaza.
HOW DOES THE CLASS GIFT CAMPAIGN WORK?
You can choose to make a gift at whatever level you are financially comfortable with! We suggest $20.20 in honor of your class year. However, any amount makes a difference!

HOW CAN I GET EVEN MORE INVOLVED?
Become an Advocate (sign and share the page) to make sure that support for KU goes as far and wide as our community can spread it!
Upload a Personal Plea video encouraging your classmates to give. Even one Personal Plea can generate widespread support through your network.
It's our way to say thank you for your commitment to #StayGolden and your way to show how passionate you are about supporting the Golden Bear experience. Class gift donors will even be recognized during commencement.
WHERE DOES MY DONATION GO?
This year, we are asking seniors to donate to "Bears Band Together." Like you may be experiencing, incoming and current underclassmen are continuing to face huge challenges during this time. We are asking you to direct your donation to the Bears Band Together fund, which will help to offset many of these unexpected expenses for the entire KU community. As many students continue to face unexpected financial hardships like the loss of employment, we anticipate to still see an increase in requests for this kind of funding in the near future. Your support is appreciated by not only the University and Foundation but also those students who desperately need assistance now more than ever.
You also have the opportunity to support any of the four major colleges, the KU Annual Fund and KU Athletics, if you choose to change your designation. During this time, we have opened additional gift designation areas for your class gift. I’m pleased to offer you the option to make a gift to areas that support these needs, including the Multicultural Center, Women’s Center General Fund, and LGBTQ+ Resource Center. You can even split your designation between the Bears Band Together fund and another above option of your choosing!
HOW CAN I MAKE MY GIFT?
You can donate online anytime or mail a check to the KU Foundation directly. You can even use leftover Bears Bucks to make your gift! Kutztown University Foundation & Alumni Engagement Offices, 15197 Kutztown Rd, Kutztown, PA 19530.
DOES MY $5, $10 or $20.20 REALLY MAKE A DIFFERENCE?
Yes, yes and yes! Every gift matters. When we add your gift to those of your classmates, we should raise over $10,000 to support your fellow students if everyone gave just a little!
