MBA Reunion Class Gift

A gift or pledge to The Wharton Fund or the Lauder Annual Fund of any size will automatically credit toward your Class Gift Campaign.

The Wharton Fund

All of Wharton benefits from your generosity. Wharton Fund donations support the latest instructional technology, cutting-edge student programming, influential faculty research, and lifelong learning and career services for alumni, along with so much more.

Your gift has a truly global reach, through supporting Wharton’s students around the world, international research and education opportunities, and the dissemination of Wharton’s thought leadership across the business landscape.

Benjamin Franklin Society:
Benjamin Franklin Society members have an outsized impact on reinforcing the core of everything Wharton stands for. It is only with the generosity of our leadership donors that the School is able to thrive today and plan for tomorrow. Benjamin Franklin Society membership starts at $2,500 annually; alumni celebrating their first reunion milestone are eligible to join the Young Franklin Society at the $1,000 level.

Make a Pledge, Amplify Your Impact:
The power of your gift can be amplified when you make a multi-year commitment. Make a pledge of up to five years and the full pledge amount will count towards your Class Gift total. For example, if you pledge to give $2,500 every year for five years, you are recognized for your commitment to your Class Gift at the $12,500 level.

Matching Gifts:
You can double or triple the impact of your gift if you or your spouse works for a matching gift company. It will be counted towards your Class Gift goal just like any other gift. Find out if your employer offers a matching gift program at
