City YearSince 1918, The Philadelphia Foundation has worked in partnership with our donors and grantees to support programs and projects that benefit the people of Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery, and Philadelphia counties.

As the primary provider of philanthropic services in Southeastern Pennsylvania, we are a pool of more than 800 charitable funds that have been entrusted to us by people who want to give something back to their community.
