We Did It!

Thanks to your loyal support, The Wharton Fund surpassed its goal of renewing 1,000 Loyalty Society members in June. As a result, the Wharton School unlocked $130,000 in unrestricted funds.

This additional funding will go to work immediately — backing the resources and programs that are a hallmark of the Wharton experience, such as student aid, Leadership Ventures, MBA Career Management, and so much more.

Thank you again for renewing your commitment to Wharton and making an ongoing impact!

The Wharton Fund Loyalty Society Logo

Members of The Wharton Fund Loyalty Society are among the School’s most committed philanthropic champions who lead by example year after year.  They understand and acknowledge, through their philanthropy, the importance of unrestricted giving.  Collectively, the impact of their ongoing support of Wharton will reverberate for generations, ensuring the School remains a global thought-leader at the forefront of business education.

The stock ticker was the earliest means by which stockholders knew the value of their investments.  Because Wharton Fund Loyalty Society members are the most consistent investors in the Wharton School, this logo represents the School’s commitment to Society members and our promise to ensure that their investments yield priceless returns for years to come.
