The Annual Fund is a crucial source of income that is used to support all of the Penn Museum’s activities. Therefore, every gift, no matter the amount, is integral to our continued success.
The aid that we receive from our community directly ensures our ability to care for our world-renowned collections and impressive historic building, to expand the world’s knowledge of human history through ground-breaking research, and to educate children and adults alike through acclaimed exhibitions and public programs.
All gifts are 100% tax deductible. Individuals who make contributions of $250 to the Annual Fund and above will be listed in the Penn Museum’s Annual Report.
Gifts to the Annual Fund are also a wonderful way to honor or memorialize a loved one. We will acknowledge your contribution with a note informing the family member or friend that you designate.
