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!

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.

Our First Virtual ImPACt Event Helped 3 NYC Nonprofits

On April 28th, we held our first, virtual ImPACt event and it was productive, engaging and overall, a great success! With nearly 30 volunteers and facilitators, we were able to assist three nonprofits – The Bay Ridge Center, Grace Institute & JustLeadership – work through some strategic challenges amid this ongoing crisis. A big thank you to our amazing volunteers who were so eager to help during this difficult time!
