The purpose of the Lifetime Giving Clubs is to increase the recognition and involvement of our most dedicated alumni and friends whose lifetime giving to Slippery Rock University exceeds $5,000. Members of the Lifetime Giving Clubs are the philanthropic leaders of the University whose gifts have made a tremendous impact on the institution and our students.
