REMEMBERING GERRY LENFEST
Gerry Lenfest was the embodiment of philanthropy and civic leadership. He possessed a powerful combination of caring, intellect, conviction, humility and action all in one person, and used it to benefit the community he loved. We at the Philadelphia Foundation feel honored to have worked with him to launch what became the Lenfest Institute for Journalism.
Sadly, Gerry passed away in 2018 at the age of 88. But his legacy of revitalizing the arts, empowering local media and bringing joy to those around him will live on forever.
