Philanthropy

The Department of Biobehavioral Health is grateful for the gifts it receives from alumni and other donors. BBH is currently seeking support for one of its key initiatives, the Founders Endowment for Excellence and Innovation, established in 2011 in conjunction with BBH’s 20th anniversary.

The Founders Endowment for Excellence and Innovation in Biobehavioral Health has been established to address a wide variety of needs facing the department, including:

  • Faculty and student support
  • New curricula
  • Acquisition of emerging technologies
  • Academic initiatives
  • Financial assistance in times of dwindling public support

Gifts to the BBH Founders Endowment will offer ongoing financial resources to the department, enabling future leaders to respond to time-sensitive financial concerns and sponsor new initiatives—in perpetuity.

Make a gift to the Founders Endowment via the secure Penn State online giving portal. Complete the brief form and click the circle at the bottom of the page to “view giving opportunities.” Scroll to the bottom of the window that opens, check the box for “Other,” and click “Continue.” Then type “BBH Founders Endowment” into the “Additional Information” box on the main giving page (or type the Allocation Code XCHFE).
