Penns Way

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

“To the generous mind the heaviest debt is that of gratitude,
when it is not in our power to repay it.” –Benjamin Franklin

Each year, through the Penn’s Way Campaign, we call upon the Penn community to respond to the needs of those less fortunate.  This year, we asked that you Make This The Year You Change A Life.  We are proud to announce that – through your incredible generosity – the FY2008 Penn’s Way Campaign raised a staggering $1,277,419.25  (a 16% increase over the FY2007 campaign) for those in need! On behalf of the University leadership and our charitable partners from the Center for Responsible Funding, Penn Medicine and the United Way of Southeastern Pennsylvania, we would like to say thanks a million again! Thanks. . .again for your unwavering commitment to providing hope and support to those in need; we are overwhelmed by our debt of gratitude.

We especially applaud the hard work and enthusiasm of the many individual volunteers who served as Volunteer Coordinators and Captains, and appreciate the support of several departments: the UPHS Marketing Department, Almanac, Business Services’ Computer Connection and Penn Publication Services, the Division of Public Safety, ISC, Penn Athletics, Mail Services, Payroll and VPUL.

Our heartfelt thanks to them and to you for making Penn’s Way’s FY2008’s Workplace Giving Campaign another remarkable success!
