"I want to sincerely thank all of those who have helped us make this an historic year for the Kutztown University Foundation," said Alex Ogeka, executive director. "Together we have shown the world what it means to be a Golden Bear." Read more.
The record was met with a $1.75 million gift to the College of Visual and Performing Arts on June 11, the largest gift in the college's history. The project and donor will be announced later this summer. In addition to the record dollars raised, the Foundation recognized several achievements for FY19. View a complete list at www.kuf.org.
