As we begin a new giving year, we want to take a moment to recognize our most loyal donors who keep Beta Pi going strong. Despite the fact that less than 25% of our alumni have ever supported our annual fund, we’re so grateful for those who do!

In our 2016-17 giving year, which ended on June 30, we raised $17,835 from 81 generous donors. A special thanks goes to the alumni from the ’60s, ’70s, and ’80s, who have given the most over the last few years. Loyal support, combined with exceptional alumni leadership, is what keeps Beta Pi going.

As we continue on at Penn, we want to remind all alumni of the importance of stepping up to the plate. Carrying on our strong culture of giving is the key to maintaining Pi Kappa Alpha’s presence on campus.

No matter how small your contribution, it can and will make a difference for Beta Pi, supporting our undergrads and our alumni program.

We want to extend a sincere thank you to all our 2016-17 donors, recognized on our honor roll. If you’d like to join the 2017-18 honor roll, make a gift today.

Here’s a snapshot of our giving trends this year:

Class with the most donors: 1969 (with a total of seven donors)

Decade with the most donors: 1970s (With 28 donors, they beat the 1960s, who had 26, by a hair.)

Decade with the highest giving total: 1960s with a whopping total of $8,015
