Penn’s Way: Surpassing Expectations

To the Penn Community:

logoThe Penn’s Way 2005 Campaign kicked off last October by encouraging the University community’s generosity in “Creating Community Together.” It was about helping the many who are facing terrible hardships, which have been aggravated in a very challenging world. Penn’s Way 2005 sought to rally the Penn community to strengthen the capacity of charitable organizations that create positive change in other people’s lives.

You not only answered the call, you surpassed our greatest expectations. This year’s campaign raised $506,390 smashing our goal of $470,000 and setting a precedent for the future. Penn’s Way 2005 also made improvements to Penn’s Way Online. This incredible technological innovation has made Penn’s Way a nationally benchmarked model for mobilizing personal volunteer networks in combined campaigns.

We are so proud to see you show such deep compassion toward our most vulnerable fellow human beings, and we know your commitment will not subside.

We especially applaud the hard work and enthusiasm of the many individual volunteers who served as Volunteer Coordinators, and appreciate the support of several departments: Business Services, VPUL, Creative Communications, Payroll, ISC, Mail Services, the Computer Connection and University’s Travel Office.

On behalf of our charitable partner organizations and the people in our region who are served, our deepest thanks to everyone who made Penn’s Way 2005 such a remarkable success.
