Black United Fund is IN

We are pleased to announce that the Black United Fund (BUF) has recently received state certification to solicit as a charity in Pennsylvania. Therefore, interested employees will be able to choose BUF when contributing to Penn's Way 2000. This news was received after the other Penn's Way materials had gone to print. Campaign materials for BUF are now being printed and will be forwarded to the coordinators in each school and center for distribution to interested parties, as soon as the University receives them.

In the interim, for those employees who want to contribute to the umbrella organization of BUF, write C0200 on your pledge card. For those desiring to contriubte to a member organization of BUF before the materials are distributed on campus, you may contact Nan Stekette at the Center for Responsible Funding at (215) 925-6140 for individual agency numbers.
