Penn's Way 2006

Dear Colleagues:

The Penn Community is truly inspiring!  We would like to extend our sincere gratitude for making last year’s workplace charitable giving campaign an unparalleled success. Through your generosity and spirit of giving, along with the important work of the many charitable organizations in our region, we’ll be able to continue to send a resounding message of hope and support to our community organizations and the vulnerable populations these agencies serve. Thank you!  

Strengthening neighborhoods and communities is an aim that we all share and this year will mark an exciting collaboration: we proudly announce that this year’s workplace charitable giving campaign will see the efforts of both the University of Pennsylvania and the University of Pennsylvania Health System combined into one exceptional Penn’s Way 2007 Campaign. As the largest employer in Philadelphia, the leveraging of our collective energies will make us STRONGER TOGETHER and the strength of our combined generosities will catapult us towards reaching our goal of raising $1,000,000 for the communities in which we live!  

This powerful union will provide an immediate impact towards making a broader difference in our region.  It will also afford you with a wider variety of charitable outlets to which to give. The Penn’s Way 2007 campaign has partnered with three organizations, each of which utilizes their expertise to approach the challenges facing our community today. They are:

•  The Center for Responsible Funding
•  Penn Medicine
•  United Way

Please review the materials to learn more about the campaign, and then go to www.upenn.edu/pennsway/ to enter your pledge and view the raffle prizes for each week. Pledging online is secure, convenient and time-saving. You can also watch for updates on the campaign in Almanac and the Penn’s Way Campaign web site.

Inspire us once again! Please help make the unified Penn’s Way 2007 campaign STRONGER TOGETHER by pledging your support today. With your generosity and our combined commitment to helping people, we will build stronger neighborhoods, improve communities and provide healthier lives for all!

Please accept our sincere appreciation for your continued generosity!
