The Robert J. and Deborah A. Chalfin Family Foundation Inc. currently sponsors the following initiatives:
- Establishing and maintaining, along with
Robert and Deborah Chalfin individually, the Robert J. and Deborah A.
Chalfin Family Scholarship Fund at the University of Pennsylvania for an
undergraduate student or students, with a preference for students in
The Wharton School, with a demonstrated interest in entrepreneurship and
financial need. This is a need-based scholarship that will be funded
into perpetuity, and ensures that financial support will be extended to
undergraduate students who would otherwise be unable to afford the cost
of an education at Penn. The student or students receiving the award
will be known as Chalfin Family Scholars.
- Supporting various charities and 501(c)(3) organizations.
