Founded with the intention of improving communities across Philadelphia, the Philadelphia Foundation has been doing just that for over a century. Since 1918, the foundation has worked to connect community-minded individuals with other people and organizations that are helping make Philadelphia a better place. The foundation goes beyond just funneling philanthropic dollars to community-based organizations, but gets involved on the grassroots level with those they are helping, and forms long-lasting relationships with those doing the work. Through its 103 years of operation, it has provided nearly $475 million in grants and scholarships to groups striving to make Philadelphia the best city it can be, born of a desire to provide more long-term funding to address the many needs of local families!
