COVID-19 Updates

Due to the COVID-19 disruptions to regular campus actives, the Wharton Token of Appreciation items are limited. As we restock our supplies, we recommend the following additional resources:

  1. Penn and Wharton branded items: Send a Penn or Wharton branded item direct from the Penn Bookstore Website
  2. Wharton School Press: Wharton’s amazing faculty authors offer insightful books that help power the Global Business Community. Wharton School Press E-Books and Books Gallery
  3. For small or large branded orders, contact one of our preferred suppliers, Nan Barash of the Barash Group

Step 4: Event day


Be sure to show appreciation and thanks to speakers and guests with a branded Wharton School Gift! Wharton Events offers a limited amount of items for purchase as speaker gifts. The Penn Bookstore is another excellent resource.

Event Gift Policy for Token of Appreciation
In lieu of honorarium for a speaker, the hosting party may thank the speaker or guest with a token of appreciation. University policy requires that the token of appreciation or gift be under the monetary value of $100. This cost should be all-inclusive, covering set-up, engraving, and shipping charges. Presenting a nice Wharton branded gift is an opportunity to reinforce our branding efforts.

Wharton Events keeps a small inventory of items for purchase for speaker tokens of appreciation. Please note: payment is only accepted via a University budget code transfer. Items are not for personal purchase.

For larger requests, we are happy to recommend vendors for direct ordering. Please allot 4-5 weeks for processing larger orders (15+ items).
