Penn's Way

To the University Community

On November 1st, we will kick off Penn's Way '96, the University's charitable workplace campaign which enables Penn faculty and staff to support its partner organizations through payroll; deductions, checks or cash.

Penn's Way, now in its fifth year, has been tremendously successful-- raising more than a million-and-a-half dollars in support of community organizations that serve those in need. This University-wide effort is proof indeed that Penn people do care about their neighbors.

Next week, you will receive your Penn's Way '96 guidebook in the mail. Please read it carefully. Then choose the organization(s) that you wish to support and return the response card in the envelope stamped "Confidential." It's a quick and easy way to show your support for others in need, and the most effective way to run a campaign of this magnitude.

The past success of Penn's Way has been due, in large measure, to the efforts of hundreds of Penn faculty and staff volunteers. To these dedicated people, we owe an enormous debt of gratitude. They have a done a marvelous job in getting the word out about Penn's Way to the faculty and staff in our University family. This year you will not hear from a volunteer coordinator. Why? Because our volunteers have done such a great job in getting the word out, and because past campaigns have shown that Penn people do care and want to participate.

This year you are needed more than ever. Your gift, whatever the size, does matter. Together, we can make a real difference in the lives of those who are counting on us. If you do not receive your Penn's Way '96 guidebook by November 10, please call Banoo Karanjia at 898-9155 or contact her at karanjia@A1.BENHUR.

Thank you for your support of Penn's Way '96 and all that you do to make Penn and its neighborhood a great place to work and live.
