Learn More About Our 35th Reunion Class Gift

We've set the ambitious goal of raising a total of $1,900,000 in Gifts from a minimum of 565 classmates to help support the following Penn initiatives to benefit its students. $200,000 of that goalfund our class project, building a small conference room in the first floor of the ARCH, adjacent to the DiLorenzo Lounge. This will  increase shared space access for all students, faculty, and staff to use for classes, study groups, seminars, and special events. A class plaque will individually recognize those who give $25,000 or more to the class reunion fundraising efforts. Additionally, $200,000 of our goal will help The Penn Fund provide immediate unrestricted funds for student aid, residential life, classroom technology and student activities - all of which are the highest university priorities. Our class has the opportunity to provide further support for talented Penn students with financial need by enhancing our Class of 1982 Endowed Scholarship as well as raising $1,500,000 toward Individual Endowed Scholarships.

Join us today in making these goals a reality for our alma mater and the students who follow in our footsteps. Giving to our reunion class gift is easy, call 800.237.2655 or visit Thank you in advance for considering your gift this milestone year.
