What in the World Is I Heart Point Park?

I Heart Point Park is a movement aimed to define and promote philanthropy through several key components:

  • Invest
  • Impact
  • Inspire & Inform

I Heart Point Park is the perfect opportunity to invest your time, talent and treasure in support of distinctive, innovative, and experiential education. Your involvement with I Heart Point Park will positively impact the lives of students and future generations. By giving your heart, you will undoubtedly inspire and inform others to make a difference too. 

What is This Year's Challenge?          

Two generous Board of Trustee members, Anne Lewis, former chair of the board, and Lisa Cibik are challenging the Point Park University community to show our love by making meaningful contributions of $5 to infinity [and beyond] during the course of the Challenge. 

If 100 alumni and friends make a gift of any size, we will unlock an additional $20,000 to the Annual Fund!

What were the Outcomes of Last Year's Challenge?

Thanks to the enthusiastic support of alumni, faculty, staff and friends, we raised more than $36,000! More importantly, the significant funds that were raised helped to:

  • Support travel for 17 students as part of the International Media Class to Ireland and Iceland through the John Fallon Travel Fund
  • Support World Cultures Dance Week, which is hosted by Point Park’s Dance Club every Fall. Guest teachers were brought in to teach various dance styles.
  • Enhance Point Park's Quality Student Experience through financial aid and supporting areas of greatest need, as well as classroom enhancements and critical resources. 

The Fine Print

All pledges and gifts made between Feb. 11, and midnight on Feb. 24, will be counted towards our campaign goals to unlock two generous gifts totaling $20,000. Unless designated to a specific area, your gift will benefit the Quality Student Experience (area of greatest needs), which impacts every area on campus.
