Philadelphia University + Thomas Jefferson University

Philanthropy & Community Service

The GSA is committed to serving in the Philadelphia community, in both a general and science-specific capacity. Each year, we host a Halloween Charity Raffle, during which attending students can bid on items donated by Philadelphia area businesses. All proceeds from the auction are donated to an area charity. In past years, we’ve donated to: Science Education Academy, Philadelphia Futures, and more.

The GSA also participates in several service oriented events throughout the year. Last year, representatives participated in Sunday Breakfast Rescue Mission and Friends of Rittenhouse service events. GSA members also volunteer at the annual Philadelphia Science Festival.
