Endowment Initiative
To ensure the breadth and depth of Abramson Cancer Center at Pennsylvania Hospital services into the future, the ACC intends to raise endowment funds to the $15 million mark by its 30th anniversary in 2017. The interim goal is to secure $7 million by the Center's 25th birthday in 2012.

The urgency of these objectives is brought to light through Pennsylvania Hospital's gracious support of the Joan Karnell Cancer Center's modern, spacious and comfortable facilities as well as our supervisory staff. However, virtually all of the Centerís specialized personnel are funded through gifts and grants.

Because the experience of cancer is already extremely expensive, even for those insured, all of our supportive care services are supplied at no cost to the patient. The Joan Karnell Cancer Center remains dedicated to the highest caliber care by expanding the Center's outreach throughout the surrounding communities. Topping this is the overarching commitment to comprehensive care for those living "with, through and beyond cancer".

Fortunately, the Joan Karnell Cancer Center's endowment initiative is being launched by virtue of the momentum of the substantial contributions and grants provided by our thoughtful donors and considerate advocates. Fueled by the magnamity of the inspirational Karnell family and stimulated by the bi-annual Together We Can Gala, our Center enjoys a widening range of general and specified support from those philanthropists who share our belief that health is our greatest gift. Consequently, we are heartened by our benefactors' endorsement of our Center's compelling and challenging mission.
