Gifts to the Penn Institute for Urban Research provide essential support for our special initiatives and general operations. Penn IUR’s initiatives stimulate academic work, while also engaging with the policy-makers and community leaders that help shape the processes of urbanization in the 21st century. By giving to Penn IUR, you become part of the effort to focus research and public attention on sustainable urban development in our world.

Individuals or organizations who give gifts of over $500 in support of Penn IUR will be invited to our annual Urban Leadership Forum, which recognizes people who have made outstanding contributions to building cities that respond to the challenges of the 21st century.
