Thank you, Penn Charter! 
We are still tallying all the gifts, but we know that because of your support we raised more than $525,000 for Penn Charter on Great Day to Be a Quaker! 

  • More than 515 donors made a gift on March 15, winning the $25,000 challenge gift celebrating remarkable participation in just one day.
  • More than 50 parents of new students made a gift, securing a $50,000 gift from an OPC challenger who issued the call to these parents. 

The Blue team earned another win in the Blue-Yellow Challenge, surpassing the Yellow team by more than 30 donors. 

But the standout winner is Penn Charter! 

Your support of excellence at Penn Charter helps us keep the future in focus for our current students, and for generations to come.
