When you donate to Penn Foundation, you help to bring hope and healing to children, families, and adults. Your generosity helps those seeking recovery from the devastation of addiction, families learning strategies to help an autistic child thrive, adults with mental illness achieve their life goals, and more. Join us today, and make a gift that changes lives.
Unless designated otherwise, donations are placed in our Commonwealth Fund, which supports all of Penn Foundation. It is also used to help individuals who cannot pay or can only partially pay for the services they receive.
Individuals who donate $1,000 or more annually are part of our Associates Program.
Campus Capital Improvements
The generosity of our caring community means Penn Foundation has a beautiful and welcoming campus. Philanthropic gifts can help us address significant building needs and campus improvements as they arise and plan for the future.
Memorial Gifts and Honorary Gifts*
A memorial gift to Penn Foundation honors and preserves the memory of a loved one. When a loved one passes, some families choose to ask family and friends to donate to Penn Foundation in memory of that person.
At special times of the year, such as a holiday, birthday, or anniversary, some people choose to make memorial gifts or honorary gifts to Penn Foundation. Honorary gifts are your expression of respect for a family member, friend, a counselor, a staff member, or leader at a charitable organization.
*Please include the name of the individual you wish to honor or remember (and if you wish, a special reason) when you send your contribution. Advancement Staff will keep you informed as gifts are made in the individual’s honor or memory.
When you include Penn Foundation in your will or estate plan, your generosity has an impact now and far in the future. Please join us in helping to continue Penn Foundation’s legacy of healing and hope through planned gifts or gifts from Donor-Advised Funds.
