Student Philanthropy

What is philanthropy at Drexel?

Every year, students, alumni, employees, parents and community members help make an impact on the University by making a gift to the area of Drexel that means the most to them. At Drexel, every college, program, academic building and so much more is touched by philanthropic gifts.

Students have an opportunity through philanthropy to impact the area of Drexel that has defined their experience at the University. Any sized gift matters; it is the collective impact of the Drexel community coming together that makes a difference for all students.

The University strives to engage, inspire and educate current Dragons about the importance of philanthropy and how alumni support has shaped the Drexel experience while also showcasing the collective impact students can have by supporting what they love.

Make your impact with philanthropy

Many of the buildings, programs, scholarships, sports, clubs and opportunities you love at Drexel have been made possible because alumni, employees, members of the community and students make donations to the University.  Each student has benefited from donor support in some way: co-op stipends, student life, University libraries, emergency funding, and interdisciplinary opportunities are all examples of the area's donors invest in that help Dragons every day. When you make a gift to any area of the University – regardless of amount you give – you are making an impact at Drexel, helping your peers and investing in future students.

The senior class gift is a proud Drexel tradition where members of the graduating class invest in the University, joining alumni and fellow students in strengthening the areas of Drexel that they love by making a gift of $20.21.

By supporting the area or program at Drexel that has defined your experience, you are paving the way for future students to continue the Dragon legacy. Click on one of the buttons below to start your legacy:
