About The Benjamin Franklin Society
Founded in 1955, the Benjamin Franklin Society (BFS) recognizes leadership unrestricted annual giving donors to The Penn Fund. Gifts to The Penn Fund at the Benjamin Franklin Society leadership level make an incredible impact in supporting current undergraduate students inside and outside of the classroom.
