There’s less than one month to go until the close of Making History: the Campaign for Penn!
Making History is the most ambitious campaign in the University of Pennsylvania’s history, spanning every school and center and enabling Penn to enrich and strengthen programs to lead across disciplines. The comprehensive campaign sought to raise $3.5 billion while simultaneously strengthening the connection between alumni and the University.
Since its public launch in 2008, the Campaign has had great success. Alumni engagement has increased exponentially each year with more alumni attending Homecoming and Alumni Weekend than ever before. And, in September 2011, Penn reached is $3.5 billion overall goal.
While the overall dollar goal has been met, there is still more work to be done within the Campaign’s priorities, which include faculty support, undergraduate scholarships, graduate and professional student aid, buildings and renovations, programs and research, and unrestricted support. Help the University meet all of its goals by making your gift before December 31, 2012!
