A Record-Breaking Year

June 30 may have marked the end of another fiscal year, but once again, the collective impact of undergraduate alumni, parents, and graduating seniors has made a lasting impression on the entire Quaker community. As current students met the moment and overcame the challenges of this past academic year, it was the loyal support of The Penn Fund’s donors and volunteers who guided their success.

Most remarkably, for the third year in a row, thousands within our community joined forces to raise gifts totaling a record-breaking amount – $46.7 million that counted toward The Penn Fund in FY2021. Individual contributions from 22,799 undergraduate alumni and graduating seniors bolstered essential financial aid, enhanced academic programs and technology, and maintained residential and campus spaces that feel like home. Thank you very much to all who chose to honor the University with their philanthropy this past academic year.

Worth Noting

It starts with an idea. An idea that is sparked by a passion to do good, to make change, to leave an impact. At Penn, we are inspiring impact every day. Impact that is ignited by our students, faculty and alumni. This impact does not discriminate or fear differences. This impact is far reaching across the globe in all communities…and it lives on indefinitely. It inspires others to strive to achieve the unthinkable and the unimaginable – and it starts at Penn.
