We’re Passionate About Penn’s Way!

Penns-Way-ThermometerAll PAH staff and employees are invited to participate in the Penn’s Way 2013 campaign which continues through Friday, November 16.

Those of us who work in health care have a special commitment to making a positive impact on the lives of others – and we share that commitment with the more than 6,000 agencies supported each year by the Penn’s Way campaign through Penn Medicine, the United Way, and the Center for Responsible Funding. All three agencies focus on the health of our community by providing resources to prepare children to achieve, build adult independence, and strengthen neighborhoods. The overall Penn Medicine goal this year is 1.4 million dollars. Our Pennsylvania Hospital goal for the 2013 campaign is $108,000, with 90 percent participation.

It only takes a minute to make a donation and change a life for the better. To contribute, participants can use their debit or credit cards just like online shopping or enroll in convenient payroll deduction payments. To make a contribution, or to learn more about the Penn’s Way campaign and the organizations you can support, please visit There you will find agency information, answers to frequently asked questions, and a link to donate online. If you wish to donate directly to Pennsylvania Hospital, be sure to designate code 00093.

You may also click the Penn’s Way banner on our PAH Intranet page to track our progress, learn about Penn’s Way events – including the PAH Penn’s Way Fair on Wednesday, October 24 – and meet the PAH volunteers making this year’s campaign possible. Over one hundred PAH employees have volunteered to be Department Captains and Campaign Coordinators this year. They’re working hard to increase the number of employees who participate, and the number of people in our community who will benefit from the money we collectively raise.

If you have any questions or concerns, please ask your Department Captain or campaign coordinator. Be sure to make your pledge as early as possible in the campaign to be eligible for individual and departmental prizes.

The generosity of the combined workplace charitable giving campaign between the University of Pennsylvania and Penn Medicine allows us to make a broader, more immediate impact on the vulnerable populations we serve. Won’t you please help us all better serve our Hospital and community?
