Giving Tuesday - Scholarship Fundraiser

 The mission of the Greater Chicago Chapter of the Penn State Alumni Association is to promote the Pennsylvania State University, its students, and alumni in the Chicago area by providing educational, social, community service, and philanthropic opportunities for its members and friends while upholding the values set forth by the University.


From Elkhart, Indiana to Rockford, Illinois, the Greater Chicago Chapter awards scholarships each year to Penn State students from the Chicago area. We award $10,000-$15,000 per year, and on #GivingTuesday, we are hoping to supplement our fundraising efforts -- which have been hampered due to COVID-19.


This year, we are honoring the memory of Dave Hart, a Penn State alumn and long-time Greater Chicago Chapter board member. Our goal is to raise $5,000 in his memory, which will be awarded to a Penn State student during the next financial aid award schedule. Thank you for your support!
