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.

The Penn Fund is here for YOU.

The Penn Fund is a major source of support that helps make your student experience extraordinary. Gifts to The Penn Fund are immediately directed to the areas of the University that need resources the most, such as undergraduate financial aid, residential and campus life, and academic enhancement. By getting involved with The Penn Fund even before you graduate, you can play a vital role in helping continue the tradition of student philanthropy at the University.
