We did it! Over 1,881 Benjamin Franklin Society members rose to the Challenge to unlock $1,000,000 for the School. Thank you to our donors and challengers for helping deliver a new era of excellence for Wharton.

We did it! We surpassed our goal of 1,881 Benjamin Franklin Society (BFS) donors. Thanks to all who participated in helping the Wharton School stay at the forefront of global business education.

We set a goal of securing 1,881 members in the 2019 fiscal year, which then unlocked an additional $1 million in funds from a select group of generous Challenge donors.

From our 1881 founding to our future, we are grateful to all who helped preserve our legacy and opened the door to more programs, more initiatives, and more opportunities. The Wharton community shares pride in investing in our School so new generations of business leaders will experience a world-class education.

Although the BFS Challenge successfully closed on June 30, you can still contribute to The Wharton Fund because our work is never over.
