Alumni Giving

Penn Vet Alumni know firsthand the impact of the unique Veterinariae Medicinae Doctoris (VMD) degree. Armed with the knowledge and hands-on training received at Penn Vet, VMDs make significant contributions to animal welfare, public health, and public safety on an increasingly international scale.

Alumni are a powerful community who can support our educational mission and ensure that Penn Vet remains at the forefront of veterinary medicine with a gift today.

Ways to Give

  • Alumni and class gifts have made an impact in variety of areas in training the next generation, including endowed scholarships, teaching equipment and research.
