Philanthropic support provided by members of the Capital Society changes lives every day at Penn State Harrisburg. Without their support of scholarships, academic programs, intercollegiate athletics and more, maintaining the high-quality student experience that is expected at the Capital College would not be possible. Here is one example of many that demonstrates the kind of impact that the generosity of Capital Society members can have on our students, faculty, and the entire community:

The Office of Development is pleased to work closely with Capital Society members to design a gift that maximizes impact, and provides direct support to an initiative that is most meaningful for each donor.
