Dear Colleagues,

With the continued energy of the combined workplace charitable giving campaign between the University of Pennsylvania and Penn Medicine, again we stand as one of the most generous campaigns in the region.

VP Public Safety Maureen Rush

The campaign theme, Giving is Penn's Way, honors the culture of generosity and thoughtfulness that exists among our employees. Collectively, our donations continue to make a broad and immediate impact on our community and the vulnerable populations we serve. With a renewed energy from the success of last year, we are excited to work towards reaching this year's goal of $1.55 million and achieve an even greater goal of impacting more lives.

The 2016 Penn's Way Campaign runs from October 5th through November 20th. It encompasses three organizations, each of which utilizes their expertise to confront the challenges facing our community today. They are The Center for Responsible Funding, Penn Medicine and United Way.

Please review the website to learn more about the campaign. You can also enter your pledge on this site as a secure, convenient, sustainable and time-saving way to support your community.

Thank you for your support,
