The Philadelphia Foundation has been committed to improving the quality of life in Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery, and Philadelphia counties for 90 years, through funds established by our donors.

As a public charity community foundation, we manage more than 800 charitable funds, maximizing the strategic impact of charitable contributions.

The Philadelphia Foundation's first obligation is to support the intentions of donors who have created funds. Individuals, families, businesses and organizations establish permanent charitable funds that help our region meet the challenges of changing times. We invest and administer these funds and award the distributions as grants and scholarships.

Our work is overseen by a volunteer board of leading citizens and run by professionals with expertise in the region’s needs.
