The 2018 Women's Giving Challenge launches March 1st, 2018 with the purpose of empowering the current generation of the Women of Penn Athletics.  In recognition of the decades of extraordinary achievements from Penn female student-athletes, an anonymous donor has pledged to match the first $100,000 raised in new or increased dollars to a Penn Athletic program with a women’s team!

The $100,000 matching gift will be allocated on a first come, first serve basis, so please consider supporting the team(s) of your choice below to further your impact with this unique opportunity.

Additionally, bonus funds will be awarded to the women’s programs with the top three alumnae participation rates:

1st Place: $10,000

2nd Place: $6,000

3rd Place: $4,000

Here is how you can make a gift that qualifies for this year’s challenge:

  • If you did not support a team participating in the Women’s Giving Challenge last year and make a gift of at least $100, your gift will be eligible for the match
  • If you did support last year and increase your gift, the increased difference will be matched
  • If you’ve already made a gift and would like to make an additional gift, the additional gift will be matched as long as it is above $100 and more than your total gift to the specific team last year


The 2018 Women's Giving Challenge will end on March 31st. To take advantage of this $100,000 matching gift opportunity by supporting your team during the Women’s Giving Challenge, please click on the participating team below you would like to support:
