Supporting Circles and Visionaries

Our generous donors sustain the Museum’s transformative work and enjoy events that deepen their connection to our mission.

I love the Penn Museum for three reasons: it encourages curiosity, promotes learning, and celebrates diversity. Learning from history gives us a deeper understanding of who we are and who the people around us are. It gives us a much stronger culture, a much stronger society, a much more forgiving society. It makes us better people.
Robert M. Levy, WG'74, Trustee Emeritus
