Dear Friends and Colleagues:

Each year Penn’s Way calls upon the unified strength of the Penn community to respond to the needs of those less fortunate.  For this year’s Where Passion Meets Action campaign you answered our call and then some!   On behalf of the University and Health System 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!  Thanks a million for your commitment to sending a message of hope and support to the vulnerable populations these agencies serve.

Because of your generosity and compassion, in spite of these challenging financial times, the Penn’s Way 2012 Campaign met and exceeded its goal of $1,350,000!  Our final total was $1,478,622. 

We especially applaud the hard work and enthusiasm of the many individual volunteers who served as Volunteer Coordinators and Captains.

Our deepest thanks to them and to you for making the Penn’s Way 2012 Workplace Giving Campaign another remarkable success! Thank You.
