Music Executive David Bolno Establishes Scholarship Fund to Benefit Perelman School of Medicine Students

Prominent music manager establishes scholarship at Penn Med, shaping future doctors.

Prominent entertainment business manager David Bolno has established the Bolno-Pineles Family Scholarship Fund, which will support University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine students—with preference for students who have demonstrated interest in Jewish studies and cultures.

Bolno has managed some of the top names in the music industry, including Post Malone, Pharrell Williams,, as well as Canadian artists Justin Bieber and Drake. In the liner notes of 2011’s Take Care album, Drake wrote “To my business manager David Bolno, thank you for pulling my life together for me and putting me in a position where I can now begin to build my empire.”

Bolno has been honored as a top business manager by Billboard, Variety, and The Hollywood Reporter. Bolno’s responsibilities include structuring business entities, evaluating cash flow and income streams, devising business plans for start-ups, performing production and tour accounting, and financial plan review and implementation.

For Bolno, the importance of education is paramount, as he sees it as a gateway to success in every realm, particularly in the health and wellness sector. Bolno graduated Magna Cum Laude with Distinction from Duke University and received his law degree from Temple University. Additionally, Bolno serves on The Alumni Council for Duke University.

The Perelman School of Medicine has consistently been a paragon of excellence in the realm of medical education and research. Its illustrious reputation, while rooted in its academic rigor and groundbreaking discoveries, is also significantly bolstered by the unwavering support of its alumni and dedicated benefactors.

In today's globalized healthcare environment, where doctors often cater to a diverse patient demographic, understanding various cultural nuances is paramount. The Bolno-Pineles Family Scholarship Fund aims to produce doctors who are not only clinically astute but also culturally sensitive. This ensures a more holistic, empathetic approach to patient care, a quality that is becoming increasingly essential in today's globalized world.

By bridging medical education with cultural studies, Bolno is setting a precedent. It's a pioneering move that promises to redefine the contours of medical education, ensuring that Penn Medicine remains not just a leader in producing top-tier doctors but also global citizens.

While Bolno's contribution is undeniably significant, Penn Medicine has been the beneficiary of several other notable donations recently:

Barbara M. Jordan, a Penn Medicine Board member, made a leadership commitment to establish the Care-7 curriculum. This innovative course aims to educate Perelman students about palliative and hospice care, ensuring that they are well-equipped to provide end-of-life care with compassion and competence.

The Benjamin and Mary Siddons Measey Foundation's multifaceted support, ranging from the Measey Specialty Transition Pathways (STEP) to Residency Program to the Measey Foundation Fellowship Award Fund, is setting new benchmarks in medical education.

Elizabeth Vates's estate has also played a pivotal role in enhancing the research capabilities at Penn Medicine by establishing the Elizabeth Vates Orthopaedic Library and Education Fund. This fund aims to improve access to scientific information and research, ensuring that Penn Orthopaedics remains at the forefront of orthopedic medicine.

Other notable contributions include the Charles Sackett Scholarship Fund, the MDS Scholarship Fund, and the continued support from the Physician Aid Association of the Delaware Valley.

As Penn Medicine continues its trajectory of excellence, it finds itself at an exciting juncture. The institution is on the cusp of a transformative era, one where medical education will be as much about understanding the human body as it will be about understanding the human spirit. And in this journey, visionaries such as the aforementioned donors will play a pivotal role. Their contributions, both in terms of financial support and innovative ideas, will shape the future of Penn Medicine, ensuring that it remains at the cutting edge, producing professionals who are equipped, both clinically and culturally, for the challenges of the modern world.

Established in 1765, the Perelman School of Medicine is the oldest medical school in the United States and one of the seven Ivy League medical schools. In the last three decades Penn doctors and scientists have participated in developing the first general vaccine against pneumonia, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and the discovery of the Philadelphia chromosome, which benefited cancer research by making the connection between genetic abnormalities and cancer. In 2022, 168 students graduated from the school.
