Established in 1927, The Penn Fund, Penn’s undergraduate annual giving fund, serves as the primary philanthropic vehicle for Penn’s 100,000+ strong community of undergraduate alumni and students. Gifts to The Penn Fund benefit the University’s highest undergraduate priorities through unrestricted support and individual endowed scholarships.
The mission of the Major Gifts Program is to raise major gifts ($250K – $5 million+) for University priorities, with a focus on the undergraduate schools: Nursing, the School of Arts and Sciences, the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences and Wharton. In addition, the program is charged with identifying and developing new major gift prospects and volunteer leadership for the Schools, Centers and University. Prospects assigned to the Major Gifts Program are largely comprised of undergraduate alumni, but also include parents of current undergraduate students.
Penn Medicine, one of the world’s leading academic medical centers, is comprised of the Ivy League Raymond and Ruth Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania and University of Pennsylvania Health System.
Penn Medicine is committed to improving lives and health through a variety of community-based programs and activities. In fiscal year 2016, Penn Medicine provided $393 million to benefit our community.
