Who We Serve

We are the Shippensburg University Foundation

We serve a university that is launching students toward achieving the American dream. We help make it possible for “Ship” to offer an outstanding education that’s still within reach. We help “Ship” educate bold thinkers, women and men who blaze new trails in business, science, education, and the humanities.

We help Ship exceed expectations

We go beyond what tuition and state funding can provide. Through you, we advance the University mission. We provide essential support so Ship can open its doors to more students, broaden its academic programming, expand critical research, and engage the region in powerful new partnerships.

We help Ship students exceed expectations

Through you, we help more bright, hard-working women and men – more than one-third of whom are the first in their family to attend college – to enroll at Ship. We help our University provide these students with the broad and deep liberal arts and sciences education, anchored by practical application, that prepares them to succeed and lead in today’s economy, and to solve the world’s toughest problems.

We help our region exceed expectations

Through you, we help Ship to serve as an economic engine for our region. We back our University as it collaborates with major area employers to offer new academic programs, such as electrical engineering and international studies, that will graduate the well-educated professionals these companies need. We help make it possible for Ship to focus on entrepreneurship and innovation so today’s students will inspire tomorrow’s regional economy.

Together, we make great even better

We know Shippensburg is a great university, with a 145-year tradition of excellence. But we don’t stop at great. We can empower Ship to achieve more, to advance its mission on today’s terms—and tomorrow’s. We can help more Ship students to dream big, and realize their dreams. We can boost our regional and state economies, benefitting all of us who live and work here.

We are the Shippensburg University Foundation, and we exceed expectations.
