This by-invitation-only program provides support to organizations based in and providing services in the City of Philadelphia.
Each year, the Foundation selects between two and four Philadelphia-based organizations to support as key grantee partners with grants up to $25,000. The goal of the Philadelphia Fund is to support organizations that are implementing efficient and effective programs that can serve as models for other organizations.
Philadelphia-based organizations providing services in Montgomery, Chester, Delaware or Bucks Counties may be eligible to apply in the Core Grant Program. Contact the Foundation if you have questions about which grant program will be the best fit for your organization. Please note that the Philadelphia Fund has a separate online application process from the Core Grant Program and Strategic Initiative Program.
