Over the next few weeks, Penn faculty and staff, through our Penn's Way '98 Campaign, will once again have the opportunity to continue the tradition of supporting organizations throughout the Delaware Valley in their effort to promote and provide health, human and educational services for our neighbors in greatest need. Your generosity, as demonstrated in years past, enables a wide variety of organizations to continue to flourish and aid those less fortunate than ourselves.
This year, the United Way of Southeastern Pennsylvania and the Center for Responsible Funding will assist us in managing the Penn's Way '98 campaign. We have chosen these two management organizations for their proven track records of maximizing the funds raised through workplace campaigns.
The United Way will manage donations to their member agencies, while the Center will run a parallel campaign for the Partner organizations such as AIDS Fund, Black United Fund of Pennsylvania, Bread & Roses Community Fund, Environmental Fund for Pennsylvania, and Womens Way.
You will shortly receive materials from both the United Way and the Center for Responsible Funding. In this single campus mailing, each organization has included a booklet or pamphlet with a corresponding pledge form and return envelope.
Please make your selections using one or both of these forms and place them in the appropriate return envelope. Should you need additional information regarding how to complete the enclosed information, please contact Barbara Murray at 898-1733.
We urge you to give to your favorite organizations through Penn's Way this year and thank you for your consideration. Let's all work together to make Penn, the City of Philadelphia and its surrounding counties places of opportunity and promise for us all.
Carol Scheman,Vice-President for
