Nothing is more important than building stronger communities. That’s why in 2019 the Philadelphia Foundation launched a $1 million first-of-its-kind public grantmaking initiative in Philadelphia, entitled the Key to Community Grants. Its goal is to accelerate impact of nine solutions that are working and can be scaled and sustained to meet a significant community need or opportunity.
The application period is over, and judging is now under way. After a review panel comprised of Philadelphia Foundation staff, representatives from the grants’ co-presenters and independent experts has completed its work, voting will open to the public on July 8. Philadelphians in the seven-county area will decide which ideas receive a total $1 million in funding to flourish into action-oriented programs that enhance the quality of life in the Greater Philadelphia Region.
Thanks to all who applied by the April 29 deadline!
