This year, Friends of PUP will strive to raise the remaining funds necessary to officially open our account and then give back to PUP, making a first-time grant to the undergraduate group in support of the incredible work that they do.
Providing grants to PUP over the years is a key element of our mission as Friends of PUP. Although PUP funds its annual activities through ticket sales, additional support from Friends of PUP will allow them not just to maintain the number and quality of shows they currently produce, but to enhance and enliven those productions, expand PUP's activities, and increase their impact on the student community. With a grant this year, we are showing our support for the creativity and ingenuity that has always been a part of PUP.
We rely on the support of our "Friends" to make this goal a reality. A gift between now and December 31st will build our financial resources for the long-term growth of PUP and immediately support this season's activities: hosting more exciting opportunities for grads and undergrads to celebrate PUP at Alumni Day and Reunions and directly contributing to PUP's 2012-2013 productions. All gifts make a significant impact toward our goals in the upcoming season.
