Giving at SP2

SP2’s Office of Institutional Advancement plays a dynamic role in ensuring SP2’s growth, stability and capacity to innovate by:

  • Serving key stakeholders, including students, alumni and friends
  • Facilitating valuable connections and engagement for alumni
  • Helping fund priority needs by providing customized and diverse gift opportunities

Over the years, SP2’s Office of Institutional Advancement’s efforts have proven pivotal in enhancing the School’s ability to positively impact social issues and policies, including homelessness, gerontology, child welfare, mental health, and mass incarceration – locally and globally.

As well, Institutional Advancement has generated support for vital capital renovations for the School’s main hubs, including the creation of a conference and learning space, wellness room, and on-site eatery. In the past, the team has also garnered millions to fund financial aid and the unprecedented work spearheaded by the School’s centers and programs.

Today, the Office of Institutional Advancement continues to prioritize faculty development and endowed chairs, high impact philanthropy, graduate financial assistance, as well as program support and research.

We also offer a host of programming for alumni and customized giving opportunities for alumni and friends. Please feel free to contact Nadina Deigh, Associate Dean for Institutional Advancement to learn more. Please call 215.898.5518 or email deighn@sp2.upenn.edu.

We are always delighted to hear from our alumni and friends. Thank you for your interest in and support of SP2!
