Dear Alumni and Friends,
Thank you for visiting the East Stroudsburg University Foundation website to learn how you can make a difference for thousands of young men and women who are forging their futures here at ESU, preparing to make their mark in a challenging but exciting world.
Located in the Henry A. Ahnert, Jr. Alumni Center on the edge of the ESU campus, the Foundation stands ready to help the University thrive and grow. Whether you’re an alumnus from ESU’s early years through present times, a former or current faculty or staff member, a parent, or a friend or family member looking to honor your loved one’s sentimental college journey, the Foundation staff is here to guide you through the gift process. To us here at the Foundation, each and every contribution is meaningful, no matter the size, and you can be assured we are committed to seeing your needs and wishes are met.
Last year, the Pennsylvania State System of High Education directed its 14 state system schools to create independent fundraising entities. Through much diligence, and working with the University, the ESU Foundation Board and the Alumni Board, we are proud to have taken great strides in building a solid and trustworthy organization with a sole mission of benefitting the University, its students and its affiliates.
As you browse our Web site, we invite you to learn more about gift giving through the ESU Foundation Annual Fund, which provides direct and immediate support to Alumni Engagement programs, events, and scholarships. Perhaps you feel your contribution should impact a student through our Annual and Endowed Scholarship programs. Or, maybe your organization or business seeks a mutual partnership through sponsorship opportunities which can be handled through our Corporate and Foundation Relations program. The ESU Foundation can also assist you in taking that next step in financial and estate planning through one of several planned giving arrangements.
If you attended ESU and seek us out as an esteemed alumnus, the Office of Alumni Engagement has much to offer in terms of regional social events, the annual Homecoming celebration, alumni news and our Alumni Directory to help reconnect with dear friends who still carry that Warrior spirit in their hearts.
Our philanthropic work also proudly extends into the community and those who have faithfully served the ESU cause to include special events such as the Conference on Philanthropy, the Martin Luther King, Jr., Breakfast for the Community, the Prince Hall Endowed Scholarship Golf Classic and gatherings to show our appreciation for retired faculty and staff.
I look forward to meeting as many of you as possible and invite you to visit this dynamic, beautiful campus. We want you to help us imagine new opportunities and consider how you can impact and inspire the lives of every ESU student.
