Class Gift

We've set the ambitious goal of raising a total of $1,500,000 in Gifts from the our class to help support the following Penn initiatives to benefit its students:

The Penn Fund: $500,000 goal.  This portion of our class gift will help provide immediate unrestricted funds for student aid, residential life, classroom technology and student activities - all of which are the highest university priorities. 

Individual Endowed Scholarships: $1,000,000 goal. Our class has the opportunity to provide further support for talented Penn students with financial need.

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.
