Alumni and friends rise to the "Challenge" and raise $150,000 in new and increased gifts for the
Henry Carver Fund
You did it! Over 1500 alumni and friends of Bloomsburg University came together to raise $150,000 in new or increased gifts to the Henry Carver Fund, meeting the initial $100,000 Zeigler Henry Carver Fund Challenge and the extended $50,000 challenge. Thank you!
Presented in December 2012, Terry Zeigler '76, President/CEO of Datacap Systems Inc., Chalfont, and his wife, JoAnn Schultz Zeigler '77, challenged alumni to make a new investment in Bloomsburg University's students through the Zeigler Henry Carver Fund Challenge.
"I am delighted that our alumni and friends are investing in today's students. I cannot thank Terry and Joann Zeigler enough for their generous commitment and a vision that will have an impact on our students for years to come. The success of this challenge reinforces the philanthropic passion our donors have for Bloomsburg University."
--Dr. David Soltz, President, Bloomsburg University
Every dollar makes a difference! Your support, along with Terry and JoAnn Zeigler's matching contribution, will provide an additional $300,000 for student scholarships; student, faculty and staff research and travel; student programming; and opportunities for students to network and engage with alumni through the Henry Carver Fund.
THANK YOU ALUMNI & FRIENDS, THANK YOU
TERRY AND JOANN ZEIGLER!

Bloomsburg native gives back to hometown
with gift to BU Foundation
A Bloomsburg native and his wife, members of Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania's Class of 1972, are giving back to the local area with a $1 million gift to the BU Foundation. The donation from Duane R. and Susan Basar Greenly, Mechanicsburg, will establish The Greenly Center on the site of the former Cole's Hardware in downtown Bloomsburg.
The 44,700-square-foot Greenly Center will house the offices of the Bloomsburg University Foundation and other tenants in a four-story structure with underground parking. Pending needed approvals, the project will begin in August with the razing of the building currently located at 50 E. Main Street. Completion of the $6.5 million project is expected in June or July 2014. Click here to read more about the Greenly Center >>>
