Day of Philanthropy

This Thursday, Nov. 15, Penn State will celebrate its second annual Penn State Day of Philanthropy through a range of activities and events at all university campuses. Volunteers, students and staff will honor past gifts and also seek further support from alumni and friends.

Student organizations at University Park will have displays in the HUB, the Information Sciences and Technology Building and all across campus to explain how philanthropy has benefitted their student organization and to raise awareness of the philanthropic efforts of Penn State students. In the HUB from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. there will be photo booths, giveaways, ten student organizations and a broadcast from B94.5 radio station.
Day of Philanthropy will include student and donor-centered activities at other campuses including Penn State Harrisburg and Altoona.
“On Nov. 15, we ask Penn State alumni and friends to think about how the University has influenced their lives and to make a gift to ensure those same opportunities are available for future generations,” said Rodney P. Kirsch, senior vice president for development and alumni relations.
To learn more about the event, individuals can go to the event’s website,
