Penn has taken on the charge to tell the story of the impact of giving.

Penn’s new e-magazine, Philanthropy in Action, answers that call, telling the story of how giving shapes not only Penn’s future, but also the world around us. Featuring inspiring stories and videos and rich with interactive media, Philanthropy in Action allows you to experience the impact of Penn philanthropy like never before.

The inaugural issue features stories on how campus life has been redefined by transformational gifts that reinvigorated the Arts, Research, and Culture House (ARCH); how the Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA)’s influence and impact on Greater Philadelphia and the art world has grown over its 50-year existence; the power and possibilities of creating a lasting legacy with Penn; how an alumna’s loss inspired her to give the gift of a Penn education for a future Penn alum; why annual giving is so important to the continued success of the University, and why alumni are so inspired to give; and how the Penn experience, seen through the eyes of parents, can transform and inspire.

We invite you to explore this inaugural issue, and we look forward to continuing to share the Penn story.
