CLASS GIFT

Mobile Volunteer Portal

Your class gift counts all of the commitments made in support of the Wharton Fund from your class during your Reunion year.

THE WHARTON FUND


During a reunion year, we count all commitments (pledged over a five year period) to The Wharton Fund and call this your Class Gift. For example, if you make a commitment of $2,500 per year for five years, you are recognized for your commitment to your Class Gift at the $12,500 level.
