The 19 new funds established at The Philadelphia Foundation (TPF) in 2017 illustrate the vision and generosity of those who created them, along with the breadth of possible philanthropic impact available through TPF.

The new funds join more than 900 total funds established at TPF to benefit Greater Philadelphia and beyond. Over 26% of the new funds are endowed, meaning they will support grants and scholarships forever.

TPF applauds and thanks those who have entrusted us with being their philanthropic partners!
