DP begins search for new General Manager, Development Director

The DP Board of Directors has set in motion two job searches which will reshape the organization's small professional staff. As we announced this past summer, longtime General Manager Eric Jacobs will be retiring next summer after 40 years working for the DP (plus 4 years as student), so the search has begun to find and hire the paper's second-ever General Manager. The DP has also launched a search for a Director of Development, to shepherd and drive the organization's expanded fundraising efforts.…

Alumni reunion in Philadelphia toasts 135 years of the DP

Nearly 250 DP alumni, students and guests gathered in Philadelphia last month to celebrate the DP's rich history, re-live fond memories, honor fellow alumni, and look forward to a strong future for the organization. Ten years after the first alumni reunion, this year's event was, by all accounts, a resounding success.  An informal Friday evening cocktail party opened the weekend, followed by a series of popular alumni panel discussions on Saturday. Mel Goldstein '62 and Michael Brown '62 began the day by regaling the crowd with stories about the…

Support the DP every time you shop on Amazon

If you shop on Amazon — occasionally or frequently — you can support the DP at the same time! Amazon has a charitable giving program called AmazonSmile which gives half of one percent of every purchase to a supported non-profit organization. Half of one percent may not sound like a lot, but if every DP alum did this every time they shopped at Amazon, it would add up to a significant gift to the DP each year. With Amazon’s popular shopping holiday, Prime Day, coming up on July 16, this seemed like a good time to ask every DP alum who purchases from Amazon to register the DP as your supported charitable organization. For those who have already been doing this, thank you! For those who haven’t, it’s very simple.

As a result, the internal…
