The Mina Wattenberg, C’94 & Gregg Wattenberg Family Fund was established by Mina, C’94 and Gregg Wattenberg, to support acquisitions in Penn’s Music Library, specifically in the area of Pop and Rock Music. For Mina and Gregg, a Grammy award nominated writer and producer, music is a shared family passion. Mina joined the Orrery Society Council in 2012 to further her involvement as a Penn alumna by supporting an area that has deep personal resonance.
Mina and Gregg Wattenberg created this endowed fund to support the University’s commitment to advancing the study of Music. "We appreciate how music has the ability to express the things that matter to people in life and popular culture. Music is an important form of communication that has the ability to bring diverse people together. We believe the enjoyment of music is one of life's great pleasures that deserves continuous study and appreciation."
Contributing to the advancement of access to information resources to drive music scholarship forward is complemented by Mina's volunteer involvement as a PA Board member at Trinity School, where their daughter Mia is a student, as well as other community organizations in New York.
