For Nonprofits

The Philadelphia Foundation works closely with nonprofits in Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery and Philadelphia counties in Pennsylvania and Burlington and Camden counties in southern New Jersey.

Strengthening The Sector

Our work with nonprofits includes:

  • Making grants to strengthen and improve nonprofits’ business and operational practices.
  • Presenting workshops at which nonprofit staff and board members can enhance their skills.
  • Building nonprofit endowments to generate a steady funding stream.
  • Coordinating initiatives and providing leadership to address sector-wide needs.

Nonprofits teach our children, train our future workforce, heal us, entertain and inspire us, preserve our natural spaces and help those in need of social services. Our support is a salute to their impact on improving the quality of life for us all.

To learn more about our current initiatives, visit the Our Work section and our Press Release page.

Events For Nonprofits

We offer Grants Information Sessions and Capacity Building Workshops, where topics of interest to nonprofit staff and board members are explored.
