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.

Recognizing an outstanding class.

The Class of 1998 achieved amazing success this year in honor of their 25th reunion! Their fundraising effort was led by Faisel Khan C’98 ENG’98, Cindy Young W’98, and Adam J. Plotkin C’98 ENG’98 W’98, alongside another 30 reunion giving volunteers, all of whom exemplified a passion for Penn and continued commitment to the University’s mission. The class raised $11,578,603 in support of undergraduate student life and learning. Additionally, the Class of 1998 set a new scholarship dollar record for a 25th reunion. With 580 classmates who made a Penn Fund gift – the highest participation of any alumni class in FY23 – their class truly demonstrated what it means to have a collective philanthropic impact on the University and future generations of Quakers!
