Meet the New Members of Our Advisory Board

We want to extend a big welcome to the three newest members of PennPAC’s Advisory Board!

They are eager to grow our organization, increase our visibility and, of course, continue supporting PennPAC as we serve our local, nonprofit communities.

Spotlight on PennPAC’s Coaching Program 

The PennPAC Coaching Program has taken off! We provide targeted guidance from a small group of experienced leaders often to start-up or small nonprofits. Many clients are President’s Engagement Prize winners or otherwise connected to the Penn community.

Over the past year, PennPAC has supported six organizations – Chicago Furniture Bank, Collective Climb, Getz Movin, Global Fund for Widows (image), Rebound Liberia, and The Unscripted Project. With varying missions and needs, these nonprofits are working to improve their local communities.
