Eligibility Wizard

This wizard determines your general eligibility for grants available through The Philadelphia Foundation’s discretionary grantmaking and through the Henrietta Tower Wurts Memorial. For eligibility for other special initiatives, see separate listings.

Taking the wizard does not guarantee that your organization will be approved for a grant from the Foundation, but it clarifies that your organization meets the basic eligibility requirements to receive funding.

Completing it takes five minutes or less and is recommended as a first step to assess grant eligibility.
