The Hampton Inn & Suites in Pittsburg, Kansas has put a special emphasis on education. They chose to partner with the PSU Foundation at Pittsburg State University in Pittsburg, KS. The program is advertised around campus and we continually try to raise awareness with faculty, staff, local businesses and guests. Anyone who is coming to Pittsburg for a “Pitt State Reason” (visit the campus, attend a sporting or arts event, class reunion, etc.) is eligible for our Pitt State Scholarship Rate! This rate gives the guest 10% off, and the hotel takes $5 per room night to donate to the Pitt State Foundation. The great part about this scholarship is that it keeps it local. The donated money goes towards scholarships that are offered to students from the state of Kansas!
Mission – The mission of the Pittsburg State University Foundation, Inc. is to maximize private gift support for Pittsburg State University, exercise proper management of Foundation assets, lay the groundwork for future fundraising success in support of the university’s teaching, research, and service/civic engagement functions, and to develop and maintain positive relationships throughout the institution’s broad range of constituencies.
Since the program began, the Hampton Inn has had over 660 room nights booked, raising over $3300 for the PSU Scholarship program. Make sure to show your support to this awesome hotel! Check out their FACEBOOK for more information about this awesome hotel.
