Blue square with words Great Day to Be a Quaker

On Great Day to Be a Quaker, our interactive day of giving in support of the Penn Charter Annual Fund, there are several opportunities offered by OPCs and current parents that will increase the impact of your gift. Details are below.

We are grateful to our community for your generosity and your expressions of support of the school. We love to hear your recollections and reasons why you love Penn Charter. Please share your story with us via email,, or on social media using #GreatDayPC


The Big Dollar-for-Dollar Match: A generous OPC has offered to match every gift made to the Annual Fund on March 12, dollar-for-dollar, until we reach $100,000! Your gift will be doubled

Reunioning OPCs Challenge:  Are you in a reunion year? OPCs in the 0s and 5s are celebrating this May. To inspire greater giving to Penn Charter by reunioning classes, a generous OPC will match gifts to the Annual Fund dollar-for-dollar until the reunioning OPC total reaches $50,000. Will your class rise to the challenge? Make your gift on Great Day to be sure you're counted!

Parent Circle Giving: March 12 is a great day to step into the Parent Circle. We are one third of the way to our 2019-2020 goal of 500 families giving to unlock a $500,000 gift to Penn Charter. 

The Blue-Yellow Challenge: In a friendly competition, the Blue and Yellow teams face off to see which team can rack up the most donors on March 12. The competitive spirit has been growing every year since we started this. Blue has won three years in a row, so Yellow, you're due! Current parents, check your child's team. Pre-K families, faculty and staff without a color team can choose their own, or we will assign your gift at random.

Match for Faculty and Staff: The Alumni Society is encouraging current faculty and staff to give on Great Day by matching gifts dollar-for-dollar on March 12, up to $10,000. Lower School has had 100 percent participation in years past and Upper and Middle Schools are excited to meet that challenge, so we know this will have a big impact. 

Make a Gift on March 12!
