Class Giving


We hope you will consider supporting The Penn Fund this year! Every dollar raised means ensuring the ongoing health of Penn, and your personal gift is your vote of confidence in your alma mater. Our collective gift shows our class pride. The Penn Fund supports the highest priorities of the University, namely need-based student aid as well as student activities, residential life, and classroom technology. All gifts matter, as alumni participation is a factor in Penn’s national rankings. For some, considering a gift at the leadership donor level is possible, and we hope you give at a level that is meaningful to you. The Benjamin Franklin Society serves as an inspiration to fellow Penn alumni. Click here to see if you are eligible for matching gift dollars through your or your spouse’s company. Give here today: www.pennfund.upenn.edu/giving. For more information on supporting scholarships, click here, or contact your Penn Fund representative. Thank you in advance for considering your gift to The Penn Fund.



It's easy to become a member of the Harrison Society, which recognizes alumni and friends who have named Penn as a beneficiary of a will, living trust, retirement plan or life insurance policy that benefits Penn in the future.   If you have included Penn in your will, or would like information about making a bequest or beneficiary designation of your retirement plan or life insurance to support The Penn Fund or your class scholarship, please contact Beth Delaney (215) 898-6171 or delaneye@upenn.edu, or visit www.giving.upenn.edu/gift-planning
