Impact Grant – Jul 26

Posted by Philadelphia Foundation on March 5, 2019

Join me in celebrating Philadelphia Foundation’s second century of service to Greater Philadelphia! In recognition of this important 100th year milestone, we have an exciting impactful year planned. During the next several months, we will be acting on this special opportunity by providing bold philanthropic leadership while ensuring the needs of the most vulnerable among us are met.

In addition to the new grantmaking programs that we have rolled out over the past two years, we will support special initiatives available only this year. These opportunities will be announced in the spring and will highlight our commitment to supporting healthy nonprofits with effective programs as well as fostering diverse leadership among Greater Philadelphia nonprofits. Stay tuned for the announcement.

Following is what you can expect from Philadelphia Foundation’s ongoing discretionary grantmaking program in 2019.

From May 17 until July 26, Philadelphia Foundation will accept applications for Impact, Advocacy and Leadership grants. All funding will be available on a competitive basis and will support organizations and programs that serve low-income individuals and other vulnerable populations. Strong applicants will demonstrate a clear history of effective programs connected to larger, community-wide efforts; a commitment to collecting and using data; strong leadership and management practices; and sound fiscal performance. The amount of these awards will be no more than 10% of an organization’s operating budget.
