June 1 has great significance to staff members in every school and center at Penn: it begins the final month of the fiscal year. Gift officers across the University will use the next 30 days to explain the importance of giving annually to as many alumni as possible.
You may receive a phone call or email from a Penn staff member. In fact, you may receive more than one, as there are several fundraising offices at Penn. Here is a short listing of all of the annual funds at Penn:
- Institute of Contemporary Art
- Graduate School of Education
- Morris Arboretum
- Penn Dental Medicine
- The Penn Fund
- Penn Law
- Penn Museum
- Penn Nursing
- Perelman School of Medicine
- School of Arts and Sciences
- School of Engineering and Applied Science
- The Wharton Fund
In case you do not notice an email in your already crowded email Inbox, I encourage you to explore these annual funds’ websites. Each annual fund supports different priorities, so be sure to check each site carefully as you decide where to make your gift. And of course, these annual funds aren’t the only way to support Penn: you can also endow a scholarship or make a planned gift.
Make your gift by June 30 to be counted as a Proud Penn Donor for the 2012 fiscal year!
