Giving on an annual basis to Shepherd- as a member of university community- is a unique opportunity to influence the present and future. Shepherd University employees are important benefactors and the Foundation counts on their support each and every year.

Major donors, corporations, and foundations often use this level of participation as a gauge to determine if the cause is worthy of their support. That is a sign that employees have confidence in the institution and its mission, and they can, too.
