About The Gift:
The five-year, $1 million commitment will provide $200,000 in unrestricted funds annually to support providing superior care and comprehensive support to Four Diamonds children fighting cancer at Penn State Health and driving innovative research at Penn State College of Medicine in pursuit of cures for all childhood cancers. Throughout the course of the five-year commitment, MI Windows and Doors will be prominently recognized as a presenting sponsor for several fundraising initiatives, including Four Diamonds’ upcoming 50th anniversary, the Four Diamonds Mini-THON Leadership Summit, Penn State Dance Marathon (THON), and Play For The Kids, a newly-launched collaborative fundraising initiative to benefit THON and Four Diamonds.
This gift will advance "A Greater Penn State for 21st Century Excellence," a focused campaign that seeks to elevate Penn State’s position as a leading public university in a world defined by rapid change and global connections. With the support of alumni and friends, “A Greater Penn State” seeks to fulfill the three key imperatives of a 21st-century public university: keeping the doors to higher education open to hardworking students regardless of financial well-being; creating transformative experiences that go beyond the classroom; and impacting the world by serving communities and fueling discovery, innovation and entrepreneurship.
