Why give to Penn Charter?
William Penn Charter School embodies Quaker principles, guiding students to live lives that make a difference. The school’s mission thrives thanks to the unwavering support of a diverse community of alumni (known as OPCs, for Old Penn Charter), parents, faculty and staff, family members, grandparents and friends.
With a shared commitment to scholarship, inquiry and excellence, Penn Charter provides students ample opportunities to thrive in academics, arts and athletics. Through global connections, civic engagement and environmental sustainability, the school inspires thinkers, collaborators, innovators and leaders.
Penn Charter’s campus in the East Falls neighborhood of Philadelphia is 47 extraordinary acres of green space and landmark buildings. This is a treasured space, and the school takes every opportunity to preserve its future and enhance the student experience by utilizing all of our spaces to their full potential.
Your philanthropy empowers Penn Charter to continue the school’s timeless and transformative journey, shaping future generations with values deeply rooted in Quaker philosophy and a passion for positive change. Together, Penn Charter and its many supporters forge and illuminate a brighter tomorrow.
