Giving FAQ for Great Day

What is Great Day to Be a Quaker?
Penn Charter’s second interactive day of giving, Wednesday, March 15, 2017!

Who participates in Great Day?
For a full 24 hours, OPCs, parents, students, grandparents, faculty, staff, and friends will come together to support the school and share what we love about Penn Charter.

There will be activities on campus for students and parents, as well as opportunities to participate through social media. Follow us on twitter, facebook and instagram and use #GreatDayPC to share in the day.

Why is PC doing a day of giving?
Great Day to Be a Quaker has two primary goals: (1) To uplift and grow the Annual Fund, which supports every student, every teacher, every day (2) To unite and connect the Penn Charter community in sharing what is great! about being a Penn Charter Quaker.

How else can I participate?
