How your gift will make an impact

A gift to the Piazza Center can help achieve our vision of successful, safe, and sustainable fraternities and sororities here at Penn State and throughout the country.  The Piazza Center is poised to empower institutions of higher education in creating a safer and more meaningful fraternity and sorority experience for students. 

To make this ambitious vision a reality, the University is partnering with donors to establish the Timothy J. Piazza Center for Fraternity and Sorority Research and Reform, positioning Penn State as a national leader in fraternity and sorority research and building on the University’s ongoing initiatives to reduce unsafe behaviors and increase accountability.

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 for donor endowment gifts of $50,000 or more. 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 Greek organizations— at Penn State and across the country—have a safe and enriching college experience.
