Mission Statement

The University of Pennsylvania’s Parents Council comprises a select group of dedicated parents who serve as ambassadors to the Penn parent community and provide volunteer and philanthropic support for The Penn Fund, Penn’s annual giving program for parents of undergraduates and parents of undergraduate alumni.  Its members represent the school, class and the geographic diversity of the undergraduate population. Through meetings and activities, members are educated about Penn’s undergraduate initiatives and in turn share this information with the broader parent community.
