Why We Give
Penn State faculty and staff share their personal reasons for giving to the campus:
"In my teaching profession, nothing gives me greater satisfaction than to see my students mature and succeed in the two or four years they spend on campus. If I can assist them on their journey, academically or financially, I've done my job."
– Theresa Clemente, Instructor in Business Administration
“It’s just the right thing to do.”
– Paul Chocallo, Maintenance & Operations
"I give because, like many of my students, I was a first-generation college student. I know that the Annual Fund makes it possible for them to gain access to the American dream—a quality education at a great university."
– Lynda Goldstein, Associate Professor
Please note: you must specify that your contribution is ear-marked for Penn State Wilkes-Barre; otherwise, the funds go to University Park.
