Higher education today presents more opportunities for learning, innovation and experience than ever before. In an age of declining public support and rising costs, private philanthropy is essential for sustaining the quality of a Penn State education and for making its benefits available to all. Opportunities to give include support of scholarships, student life, faculty, and research, among other areas.

Gifts to the College of Education make tangible differences in the lives of students and faculty. Philanthropy enables us to catalyze important advances in learning and provides the financial support our students need to realize their dream of a Penn State degree. We continue to have ambitious goals for the future and your donation is an important part of our path forward.

Below are a few examples of the myriad ways philanthropy benefits the College.
