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

Dear Friends and Colleagues:

Penn’s Way, our workplace charitable giving campaign at Penn, is a way for us to be there for the Penn community, and together we can make a difference for those in need. Our campaign theme, Going the Distance for our Community, spotlights Penn’s commitment to support those in need. And it’s never been more important than it is now. From faculty and staff across the University and Penn Medicine, our people have proven their generosity time and again.

Collectively, our donations continue to make a broad and immediate impact on our community and the vulnerable populations we serve. We are asking our team members to give what they can; to give from the heart.

The Penn's Way Campaign runs from October 3 through November 18.

Please take a minute to learn more about the campaign. You can also enter your pledge on this site as a secure, convenient, sustainable, and time-saving way to support your community. The website is now mobile-friendly, so even easier to navigate.

We encourage the Penn community to bring home the message of caring, in this very challenging year, by contributing to organizations that are, like us, going the distance for our communities.

Thank you for supporting Penn’s Way!
