Penn Engineering Annual Giving Fund
Are you up for the Challenge?!
We are delighted to announce an exceptional opportunity for Penn Engineering. An anonymous Engineering alumnus has issued a fund-raising challenge. He will give $50,000 if we are able to increase the number of donors to Engineering Annual Giving by 100, reaching a total of 1,921 supporters by June 30. To meet this challenge, we need your participation.
Engineering Annual Giving monies will enable the faculty and students of SEAS to continue to anticipate new directions and move forward, seeking and devising creative approaches and solutions. Please make a commitment to help us attract and retain the best and brightest students and faculty. Give now!
Recent impact of Annual Giving support:
- We supported the Penn Electric Racing Team participation in Formula SAE competition in Lincoln, Nebraska, where our electric car, REV1, took first place overall, winning seven of the eight categories. This highly competitive international event included more than 100 teams.
- We purchased 80 LINUX software stations and 126 workstations for our undergraduate academic labs to help with instruction in computing.
- We completed two phases of equipment installation in the cleanroom of the Quattrone Nanofabrication Facility. New, state-of-the-art tools were purchased and existing equipment from the Moore School was moved to this space.
- We upgraded the infrastructure in the Laboratory for Research on the Structure of Matter improving the quality of our laboratories.
