Penn Football student-athletes have made the choice to attend Penn for reasons that go way beyond athletics. They embrace the challenge that comes along with pursuing a world-class education in a world-class city. That being said, we believe that athletics are co-curricular and only enhance what is learned in the classroom.  Penn student-athletes have made a commitment to perform at the highest academic and athletic level and in turn we ask that you consider making a similar commitment.  Support, from people like you, will help our student-athletes achieve their academic goals while enabling them to compete for Ivy League championships.

Financial support of Penn Football goes directly to support the costs that come along with operating a division one program.  Specific costs include:

  • Equipment
  • Player development
  • Sport performance
  • Team travel
  • Team meals
  • Recruiting
  • Game day operations
  • Preseason Camp


With operational costs continuing to rise at roughly 5% per year, your philanthropy is much needed and greatly appreciated. Your investment in our student-athletes will help ensure that Penn continues to provide a world-class academic and athletic experience rivaled by no other institution.
