It may at first seem odd to celebrate what is usually a snowy, cold, and glittery holiday in January, we at The Penn Fund are very excited to celebrate the end of our 2011 fiscal year and the beginning of fiscal year 2012.
Thank you to all of our Penn undergraduates and friends who took the time between July 1, 2010 and June 30, 2011 to make an annual gift to The Penn Fund in support of Penn students! Our reunion classes had record-breaking years and we are looking forward to announcing our total numbers in the coming weeks, including higher than ever numbers of Benjamin Franklin Society and Ivy Stone Society members.
While we also broke through dollar records this year, it is the participation that the University is most excited about. Knowing that 25,000+ undergraduate alumni come together every year and contribute whatever they can to The Penn Fund – in support of the students who follow in their footsteps – truly demonstrates the amazing commitment of Penn alumni.
Therefore, I wish all of you a very happy new year and I hope you will join The Penn Fund in fiscal year 2012 in support the immediate priorities of undergraduate education at Penn.
