Endowment To Match 2021 Class Gift By Up To $10,000
Donations to the Class 2021’s Class Gift, the creation of Penn State’s first-ever Student Access And Equity Fund, will be matched up to $10,000 through an endowment created in honor of a longtime Penn State leader.
The new fundraising initiative is made possible through the Peter Weiler Family Endowment in Advancement and Philanthropy, which was created in 2019 in the name of the late leader of Penn State’s fundraising and alumni relations team. Donations will be matched one-to-one through Friday, December 31.
“It’s been amazing to see the Class of 2021 unite in support of the Student Access and Equity Fund and the positive impact it will have on our entire institution,” Student Philanthropy Network President Rachel Bruning said. “This generous match is just another example of how dedicated our University community is to creating the most inclusive and equitable Penn State — and it makes me proud.”
The Student Access and Equity Fund was selected in December by the Class of 2021 as its gift. The fund will support individuals who “contribute to the diversity of the student body” and are unexpectedly in need of help affording expenses not covered through financial aid.
