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. Your support creates the foundation for these good things and so many others, while providing current and future Quakers with the rich Penn experience you remember – and they deserve.

Pay it forward and Pass Penn On this Giving Red and Blue Day.

Last week in London, our class gathered with the Class of 1998 to pre-celebrate our respective reunions. It was nice to gather ‘across the pond,’ but we hope to see all of you on campus in May for the real deal - our 25th Reunion! #penn1993

We loved seeing classmates on campus in September for #PRLC18 to plan our reunion. We were definitely excited about our 25th Reunion in May, and talked about how to get as many classmates back to campus as possible and have lots of classmates make a donation to the Penn Fund. We have lots of work to do, but it was fun with everyone pitching in to help. We also were the only class with a banner - and numbers! Hurrah, Hurrah Penn 1993! #93tothe25th .

Christine was visiting her parents, and instead of meeting Kiera and Kathleen for coffee, a plan was hatched to catch up while watching classmate therealchrissyhofbeck on the #SurvivorFinale! Many classmates tuned in this season to watch and cheer for Chrissy - we had so much fun watching her play - and win all of those immunity challenges! Christine, Kiera and Kathleen also talked about our upcoming reunion - who is coming (all of them!), hotel rooms, childcare, marching with our class for Commencement and encouraging other classmates to come for Penn Alumni weekend and make a donation to thepennfund. We have so much to celebrate - and hope to see many more gatherings of ‘93 classmates in the months leading up to our 25th Reunion! .
