By the light of our charter
How far can we see?

The Campaign

Today, the How Far? campaign has raised over $91 million toward an updated goal of $125 million. Together we carry forward William Penn's legacy and advance our vision.

By the Light of Our Charter How Far Can We See? Our campaign began quietly in 2013, backed by school leaders, OPCs and parents who share the goals of our Strategic Vision and joined together to create exciting changes now and for years to come.

When the campaign went public on Oct. 20, 2017, we had raised $50 million toward an ambitious goal of $75 million.

We See

It's personal. An OPC's experience. A parent's dream. A teacher's sense of purpose. PC people tell their stories.
