Penn's Way 2000 Goal

Dear Colleagues:

As co-chairs of Penn's Way 2000, we have heard many stories about how local charitable agencies have played an important role at critical times in the lives of many faculty and staff at Penn. These stories are told quietly every day and are a compelling argument for helping the many charitable agencies in our region continue their valuable work.

There is no one agency that meets all of the priorities and needs of a community. Some help the poor achieve self-sufficiency; voluntary health agencies target specific illnesses; there are services for children, youth and the aged, those targeting mental health or substance abuse, others assisting with child care, career changes, housing and employment. Every family has it's own story; every agency tells a different tale.

In a workplace giving campaign, no donation is too small; every dollar matters. It is the impact of our combined financial contributions that makes a difference. With Penn's Way 2000, we hope to raise $300,000 for area charitable agencies.

Please remember the spirit of giving this holiday season.  Give to Penn's Way now and help us reach our goal!

 --Larry Gross, Chair Elect, Faculty Senate   --Carol Scheman, Vice President of Government, Community and Public Affairs
