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

April 4, 2024

Giving Red and Blue Day

On Thursday, April 4, undergraduate alumni will come together to enhance the University’s mission of  providing  world-class academics and transformational opportunities for current students through support of The Penn Fund.
This year, we can also have twice the impact! As of Thursday, April 4, the next $500,000 in contributions will be matched dollar for dollar (up to $50,000) as part of our now extended Giving Red and Blue Day $1.5 Million Challenge. Let’s keep going and growing together! Through our collective support, we can ensure that Penn remains a place of excellence, opportunity, and lifelong connections. Every contribution, no matter the size, is a truly meaningful investment.
