Compassion in Action: $515,418

Penn's Way

To the Penn Community:

The Penn’s Way 2006 Campaign kicked off this past October with a very ambitious goal.   Our goal was to raise a half a million dollars.  Not an easy task, particularly in light of the competing philanthropic giving targeted toward Hurricane Katrina and other large scale disasters.  We felt that it was important to build upon the momentum gained from last year’s effort. We also felt confident in our knowledge of the Penn community’s compassion for the well-being of its community and citizens across the country.  Therefore the decision to set our goal at half a million was an easy one.  We are very pleased to announce that because of your efforts we have collected a total of $515,418. Compassion in Action indeed! 

Because of you, many of the people who are facing arduous days today will be facing brighter ones tomorrow.  Because of you, hardships will be turned to hope. 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: Almanac, Business Services, Computer Connection, Creative Communications, Division of Public Safety, ISC, Penn Athletics, Mail Services, Payroll, University’s Travel Office and VPUL.

On behalf of our charitable partner organizations and the people in our region who they serve, our deepest thanks to everyone who made Penn’s Way 2006 another remarkable success.
