The Parents Fund supports undergraduate education and is a vital funding source that creates unique opportunities for students and enhances programs across campus. Each year thousands of parents and grandparents help shape the Penn experience with their unrestricted gifts. Unrestricted support from parent donors helps fulfill the immediate needs of the University – supporting the undergraduate experience in areas such as financial aid, residential enhancements, student life and academic support.
No gift is a small gift! All Parents Fund donors, no matter the size of their gift, enrich life at Penn. Smaller gifts add up quickly to make a significant difference over a year, and allow Penn to make valuable improvements in undergraduate life as they are needed. Gifts from parents are a show of involvement, passion and confidence in Penn, and strengthen our University's stature.
