Philadelphia(#cityofbrotherlylove) Pennsylvania’s largest city is known as the City of Brotherly Love, and is the birthplace of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. The National Constitution Center is dedicated to “We the People.” Philly is also the home of Independence National Historical Park which includes the Liberty Bell Center, Independence Hall, the President’s House, Carpenters’ Hall and other sites. There are world class art and science museums, major parks and gardens, iconic architecture and more. It also boasts the Reading Terminal Market, a panoply of dining and shopping experiences. In 2021 Philadelphia was named one of the top destinations in the world to visit by Conde Nast Traveler.
Despite its rich history, Philadelphia has the distinction of being the poorest big city in the US, with a poverty rate of 23.3% in 2019, leaving a lot for our giving circle to do to improve the lives of Philadelphians.
