Road to $1 Billion: More Than Ever Fundraising Progress

After announcing an increased goal from $850 million to $1 billion last November, the Wharton School is over 80 percent of the way to its historic target.

  • Dating from the campaign’s start in January 2013, Wharton has raised $810 million from 24,324 donors.
  • In the 2019 fiscal year, Wharton raised over $142 million.
  • 2018 was a record-breaking fundraising year for Wharton, with more than $225 million raised.
  • Wharton’s $1 billion goal is part of the $4.1 billion Power of Penn campaign.
  • Faculty and student support are among the Power of Penn campaign’s highest priorities — since the public launch of the campaign in April 2018, generous donors have created 18 new undergraduate scholarships, 16 MBA fellowships, and five professorships at Wharton.
