Unrestricted Fund

An Unrestricted Fund allows the Philadelphia Foundation to address the community’s greatest needs. Grants are awarded upon recommendation of the Foundation’s professional staff and approval of the Board of Managers.

Many of the problems that make headlines today could not have been predicted even one generation ago. While we cannot foresee the future, we know that being able to respond to the situation – whatever it turns out to be – is crucial if our region is to sustain its current quality of life.

With an Unrestricted Fund, donors entrust the Philadelphia Foundation with the capital and responsibility to assist effective nonprofits in meeting the local community’s greatest needs.
