    Executive Director of the Piazza Center 

With overall costs to create the center estimated at $8 million, the University has committed $2 million in initial funding as well as an opportunity for up to $3 million in 1:1 matching funds.  Through this opportunity, alumni, parents, and friends can leverage their gifts to secure matching funds that double the impact of their generosity. And through private support, donors can help the University work toward the goal that students in fraternities and sororities— at Penn State and across the country—have a safe and enriching college experience.
