Giving is Penn’s Way

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has."

Margaret Mead

January 2023

Dear Friends and Colleagues:

Each year Penn’s Way calls upon the strength of the Penn community to respond to the needs of those less fortunate.  For this year’s Going the Distance for our Community campaign you answered our call and then some!  On behalf of the University and Health System leadership and our charitable partners from Penn Medicine and Philadelphia Alliance for Change, we would like to say THANKS A MILLION!  Thanks a million for your commitment to sending a message of hope and support to the vulnerable populations these agencies serve. 

Because of your generosity and compassion, the Penn’s Way Campaign raised $1,338,703 from close to 14,000 Penn faculty and staff.

We especially applaud the hard work and enthusiasm of the many individual volunteers who served as Penn’s Way Volunteer Coordinators.

Our deepest thanks to them and to you for making the Penn’s Way Workplace Giving Campaign another remarkable success! Thank You.
