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.

You know, you’re Quakers, too!

Penn parents and grandparents help shape the Penn experience through their generous involvement with The Penn Fund, which helps provide an invaluable educational experience for their children and grandchildren. Experience life as a Quaker alongside your child—throw a piece of toast onto Franklin Field, don a Penn tee, and take a stroll down Locust Walk. This is your campus now, too.
