Eligibility Wizard

This wizard determines your general eligibility for grants available through the Philadelphia Foundation’s discretionary grantmaking, the Henrietta Tower Wurts Memorial, and Special Initiative grants.

Results generated by the wizard do not guarantee that your organization will be approved for a grant from us, but it clarifies that your organization meets the basic eligibility requirements for the funding streams indicated.

Completing it takes five minutes or less and is recommended as a first step to assess grant eligibility
