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.

Thank you for going above and beyond.

We are only able to deliver on our promise to support Penn undergraduates because of you. Every time an alum or parent gets involved as a volunteer, our community grows that much stronger. We are grateful for your time, your energy, and your Penn pride. Go Quakers!

Ways to Get Involved

Volunteer Opportunities

Reunion Giving volunteers

Reunion Giving Volunteers

Reunion classes are led by giving committee volunteers who establish both donor and dollar goals to achieve throughout the reunion cycle and fiscal year—July 1 to June 30. Gifts in honor of milestone celebrations directly benefit The Penn Fund and special projects chosen by several classes.

Class Giving Volunteers

Whether or not you are in a reunion year, there are many ways to help your class reach dollar and donor goals that help keep the Penn philanthropic tradition alive year after year. After all, Benjamin Franklin himself said: “An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest.”
