We’re excited to share that our 2022 Annual Report is live!
This year’s report highlights our 2022 accomplishments, stories of our mission in action, and some of the people whose dedication to our mission makes it possible. Thank you for supporting people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, their loved ones, and our invaluable Penn-Mar team. Your generosity allows us all to Live Courageously!
The 31st Annual Penn-Mar Gala was held on Saturday, March 4th! We are thrilled to share that the Gala raised over $1 million, and we raised over $530K in our Special Appeal alone, which put us over the finish line for our Building Bold Futures Campaign goal of $7.5 million! Thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone who supported the Campaign, the Appeal, or the Gala!
We always say it’s not about the money – it’s about what the money enables us to do, which is to carry out our mission to Live Courageously!

In this guest blog, Kathy Rogers writes with a heart filled with gratitude for the tremendous support we received from donors and friends who attended our 31st Annual Gala this month. Their generosity and commitment to our mission helped us to achieve two historic milestones in one incredible evening.
A unique opportunity arose when Penn-Mar’s Tina Chan-Sweenie reached out to Pauline Savage at the Jemicy School. Penn-Mar is organizing a Fashion Show for the people we support and the students at Jemicy School will be designing the inclusive custom clothes, making for an exciting collaboration!
