Since 1927, gifts to The Penn Fund—from undergraduate alumni and parents like you—have made a profound and immediate impact on all aspects of student life and learning at the University by providing grant-based financial aid packages to undergraduates, supporting enhancements to academic programs and campus technology, and fostering community through student clubs and organizations. This longstanding tradition of loyal generosity allows donors to support the University’s greatest needs and highest priorities through the general fund, long-term scholarship support, and special reunion class projects.

Giving Red and Blue Day

Since 1740, the University of Pennsylvania has unlocked potential, opened doors, and made the impossible possible for thousands of undergraduate students.

Every year, a new and excited class of proud Penn alumni has – with gratitude for their time on campus – launched forth to achieve their goals, passions, and dreams.

This happens, in part, because of generous donors who help ensure the University’s enduring academic excellence and enable the most talented students to attend, regardless of their need.

On behalf of everyone in The Penn Fund, including lead volunteers on the Executive Board, thank you very much to the generous undergraduate alumni and members of the Quaker community who paid it forward to Pass Penn On this Giving Red and Blue Day!

Your collective impact – during this important 24-hour effort on Thursday, March 18 – will be felt in support of student life and learning across the University.
