The Founders’ Society

The Founders' Society is the University's premier annual giving society honoring the sustained commitment of Slippery Rock’s most loyal donors. Named to acknowledge those who originally supported the institution, The Founders’ Society recognizes donors who demonstrate their Slippery Rock pride by making an annual gift of $1,000 or more to Slippery Rock University.

The Founders' Society welcomes Slippery Rock University alumni and friends who contribute $1,000 or more within the current fiscal year. The gift may be used to create a new scholarship, or designated to an existing scholarship, program, or project of choice.  Contributions can be made at one time or during the course of the fiscal year.  Additional cumulative gifts of $1,000 or more on an annual basis renews The Founders’ Society distinction in subsequent years.

As a symbol of appreciation for this commitment, members of The Founders' Society receive special news and updates directly from SRU President Cheryl Norton, invitations to special events and activities, and recognition in the annual online Honor Roll of Donors.

Each year, gifts through The Founders' Society provide vital funds to support the best of a Slippery Rock University education, including:

 • Excellent academic programs

 • Outstanding faculty/student research projects

 • Valuable scholarship support for students

 • Enhancements to technology and facilities

 • Life-changing Slippery Rock University Experiences: study abroad programs, internships, service-learning, and student leadership

Gifts through The Founder's Society equip the next generation of Slippery Rock University graduates to lead in an ever-changing world.
