$100,000 Match Update!

We met the $100,000 match!

Chief Development Officer Jack Rogers Hon. 1689, a parent of three OPC daughters, announced that we've reached the $100,000 dollar-for-dollar match! That means that – through the generosity of that anonymous $100,000 donor and gifts from more than 150 supporters today – we've raised $200,000 so far on this Great Day to Be a Penn Charter Quaker.

THANK YOU! Watch Jack's announcement.


Midnight Challenge

A second anonymous donor has laid down a second challenge. If more than 300 donors make a gift before midnight tonight, Penn Charter will unlock a $20,000 gift! With 150 donors so far, we're halfway there. 

The Blue-Yellow Challenge continues! The team totals are almost identical right now, but who will come out on top? Jack predicts Blue, but as a dad of three on the Blue team, he's biased! 

You can make your gift here.

We can do it! #GoCharter!

We Have A New Challenge!

Jack Rogers Hon. 1689 gives us an update from the Senior Stairs.

Thanks to so many generous OPCs, parents, faculty and staff, we've raised more than $20,000 and met the $20,000 dollar-for-dollar match from a generous Overseer! 

And it is definitely a Great Day to Be a Quaker because another Overseer has just issued a new challenge to Penn Charter. If a total of 250 donors give on Great Day, we will unlock his gift of $25,000! 

We know we can do it, but we need your help! Visit www.penncharter.com/give today to support Penn Charter and help us meet this challenge! 

Thank you to all for making every day a Great Day to be a Penn Charter Quaker!

Why Do You Give? PC Answers

It's a Great Day to Be a Quaker because of Penn Charter's incredible community of OPCs, parents, friends, faculty and staff. We love hearing why you support Penn Charter. Thank you to each and every one of you!

I give because PC has made me a greater person and I'm very lucky to be an OPC.
- OPC '01

I give every year because as a lifer and a faculty kid, I basically grew up at PC. PC shaped me into the person that I am today and I want further generations of students to have those same incredible experiences and memories.
- OPC '02

I owe so much of who I am and what I've accomplished to the amazing education, opportunities, and mentors I was provided with at Penn Charter.
- OPC '00

We give to Penn Charter because Penn Charter gives so much to our children.  It's been an awesome experience.  We are so glad we chose PC.  Go Yellow!
 - Current Parent

I love PC and what it does for families and what is has done and is doing for our children - community is important and relationships and love are vital - PC provided these essential needs and instills values in children the will serve them well as adults - my truth - I've witnessed!
- Current Parent / Parent OPC

Because there is no better investment, than the one made in the educators of our children, and the education of our children
- Current Parent

Great education.
 - Senior parent
