As the youngest members of the Veterinary Heritage Circle, Miranda (age 12) and Ethan (age 11) can thank their uncle, Frank Rasmus, for instilling in them a sense of the importance of philanthropy and giving back to causes with special meaning to them.
Together with Frank, Miranda and Ethan have supported many causes at Penn and beyond, including the Morris Arboretum and Guiding Eyes for the Blind.
Since both Miranda and Ethan love animals, adding Penn Vet to their charitable activity as a beneficiary of their retirement accounts was a natural fit. Their generosity has and will continue to support clinical trials through their endowment for the Veterinary Clinical Investigations Center.
They believe in the potential of this type of research to benefit humans and the pets that mean so much to us.
