In honor of Kutztown University's 150th Year Celebration, a 2016 Class Gift Committee was created to help provide an opportunity for students to pay it forward.  The 2016 Class Gift is a wonderful opportunity for KU graduating students to give back and help maintain for younger students the same quality of life and education they experienced.  Contrubutions towards the 2016 Class Gift support the 150th Scholarship Fund, created to finance student scholarships for future Golden Bears.

Graduating students who contribute $20.16 to the 2016 Class Gift will receive a 2016 pin that can be worn during commencement.  Those who contribute $1 or more (because every dollar can make a difference!) are welcome to sign their names on a 2016 Class Gift banner that will be part of the commencement ceremony.

For more information on how to participate, please visit the 2016 Class Gift website or call the KU Foundation and Alumni Relations office at 610-683-4110.
