When the Classes of 2015 and 2016 neared their graduation milestone, they came together to leave their legacy at Penn Vet through a Senior Class Gift. The class officers knew that this was a great opportunity for their classmates to make an impact for the good of the School.
The Class Gift program is a student-led initiative that promotes a philanthropic spirit among the graduating classes, providing students an opportunity to give back to their alma mater.
Both classes let their classmates lead the process by conducting a vote on their gift designation.
The 2015 Senior Class Gift raised funds to purchase comfortable red and blue executive chairs for the student area on the third floor of Ryan Hospital. The area now has a more professional look for all who utilize the space.
The 2016 Senior Class Gift raised funds for the Charitable Care Fund and the Shelter Medicine Fund to support the Pets for Life initiative. The Charitable Care Fund assists families of companion animals who cannot afford the full cost of veterinary services at Penn Vet. Penn Vet’s Shelter Medicine program teams up with the Humane Society of the United States and their Pets for Life program to provide free spay/neuter and wellness care for pets in underserved communities.
A heartfelt thank you to V’15 and V’16 for making their mark on Penn Vet and the community through their generous class gifts!
