Volunteer Materials: Fundraising/Gift Committee

Be Penn proud! Help your class reach participation and dollar goals that are in line with your love for Penn.  

 

The University’s strength is its people. The amazing professors, coaches, classmates, friends and alumni whose efforts make many things possible. Each year, leading up to Reunions, we ask you to: Serve, Support, Socialize & Secure.

Serve: As a class ambassador on the gift committee strengthens both your relationship with the University as well as your classmates’. Gift committee volunteers work in tandem with Penn Fund staff to encourage financial support of your class gift.

Support: We ask all alumni and in particular volunteers to give with an extra degree of generosity and consider making a multi-year commitment in honor of reunion.   

Socialize: Class ambassadors generally spend 1-4 hours per month connecting with classmates. You are exposed to the latest inside information and priorities of the University. With roughly 1-2% of your classmates serving as class ambassadors in reunion years, we ask you share this information with your peers and share the case for joining you in giving.

Secure: The best part of volunteering is reconnecting with old friends and making new Penn connections. Asking peers to give becomes exciting as we take responsibility for the rise in donors and leadership gifts raised.  As a committee, we celebrate the tradition of loyalty among classmates while making a meaningful impact on today’s students.
