Game Changers

The Success with Honor (SWH) Game Changers is a program designed to identify the skills, talents and resources each of us have to offer and then match those resources with a charitable endeavor that resonates with each individual’s values.

  • Need for professional services, expert skill sets and access to products and services is almost universal among non-profits.
  • Not practical to have these skill sets and resources within the organization on a full time basis.
  • We envision a resource bank that non-profits can draw from on an as-needed basis.


  • The Penn State Alumni Association is the largest dues paying organization of its kind in the world.
  • With nearly 600,000 alumni, you’ll find Penn Staters in every state in the union and in numerous countries around the world.
  • More than 80,000 students in 160 majors at 17 colleges and 23 campuses throughout the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
  • Penn State World Campus ranks as the number one online institution in the Top 25 Online Colleges and Universities and expands the geographic reach of Penn State globally.
  • Penn State Ranks 49th in the 2012 Academic Ranking of World Universities.
  • Penn State ranks as the top producer of Fulbright scholars among research institutions -- and all institutions, as well -- in the nation.
  • The Wall Street Journal Ranks Penn State #1 with corporate recruiters.
  • Penn State consistently ranks near the top among NCAA institutions for student athlete graduation rates.


If you call yourself a Penn Stater, whether alumni of friend, you are part of a diverse family of talented, passionate people that is second to none. We could fill volumes with the accomplishments of Penn Staters and not run out of stories to tell. More importantly, each and every one of us has something to contribute to someone in need or some cause that resonates with our values. Our mission is not to simply praise the virtues of Penn State, but to harness the nearly unlimited potential of the Penn State Family to support many worthy, charitable causes lead by Penn Staters.

Game Changers is a program designed to identify the skills, talents and resources each of us have to offer and then match those resources with a charitable endeavor that resonates with each individual’s values. All non-profits at times will need the services of legal and accounting professionals, web developers and public relations/marketing resources. It’s not realistic for most non-profits to maintain these skill sets/resources on their staffs. Furthermore, every dollar they spend on these services is a dollar they cannot spend on accomplishing the stated mission of their organization. That is where Game Changers comes in. Every need that a charitable endeavor could possibly have is available within our Penn State Family. Join Game Changers and we’ll help you get off the sidelines and into the game!

OUR PLAYBOOK IS STILL UNDER DEVELOPMENT: PLEASE check back often to find out how you can GET IN THE GAME!

Game Changers in Action

Success with Honor co-founder Bob Taylor asked himself, as he does with each charity he’s uncovered, how can I help the Penn’s Civilians Education Organization? Sure there are the obvious things he could do (make a donation, attend an event, etc.) but what else did he have to offer PCEO. As it turns out, he had unique connections in his personal and professional networks that had just what PCEO needed at that time. He was able to secure a donation of gardening tools and rental of a rototiller from contacts within his network. It was as simple as taking time to ask PCEO founder Rick Sayles what his organization needed and then turning to his network to fill that need. This type of connection between resource and need would have been highly unlikely without a network to bring the two together.

The objective of Game Changers is to seek out passionate Penn Staters who have access to valuable skills/resources and help them find an outlet for that passion. It feels great to roll up your sleeves and make a positive impact on the lives of others, but it feels even better when you’re teammates in the endeavor are others who take great pride in what it means to call oneself a Penn Stater.
