Our Mission...

Networking, Outreach, Scholarship, Charity

The Capital Area Chapter of the Penn State Alumni Association (the "Capital Area Chapter") is a 503(c)(3) tax-exempt organization organized and existing under the laws of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.  Founded in 1908, the Capital Area Chapter is the local affiliate of the Penn State Alumni Association and serves Alumni, Students and Friends of Penn State in Dauphin, Cumberland and Lebanon Counties.

The Capital Area Chapter is a non-profit organization centered on the ideals that embody Penn State -- namely, charity, integrity, and success with honor. To that end, the Capital Area Chapter maintains a portfolio of initiatives that promote the networking of our alumni, students and friends of the University and bring them together to participate in initatives that promote scholarship, student and community outreach and philanthropy.  Please review our committee information for more details on the active initiatives supported by the Chapter.
