About Penn's Way

Do your little bit of good where you are; it's those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world.

Desmond Tutu

Dear Colleagues,

Penn’s Way, our workplace charitable giving campaign at Penn, is a way for us to all do a little bit of good within our Penn community, and together we can make a difference for those in need.  

We are pleased to say that Penn’s Way is recognized as one of the most generous workplace giving campaigns in the region.  Our campaign theme, Giving is Penn's Way, honors the culture of generosity and thoughtfulness that embodies Penn. 

Collectively, our donations continue to make a broad and immediate impact on our community and the vulnerable populations we serve. With a renewed energy from the success of last year, we are excited to work towards reaching next year's goal and achieve an even greater goal of impacting more lives.

The Penn's Way Campaign runs from September through November.  It encompasses three organizations, each of which utilizes their expertise to confront the challenges facing our community today. We are excited to begin a new partnership with the Philadelphia Alliance for Change, which has transitioned into the role previously fulfilled by the Center for Responsible Funding.  And we continue to enjoy working with our two long-time partners, Penn Medicine and United Way.

Please review our re-designed website to learn more about the campaign.

Thank you for supporting Penn’s Way!
