Discover Philadelphia

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.

Philadelphia Independence Hall

The Urban Tree Connection (UTC)

is a community-based nonprofit whose mission is to build a neighborhood food and land system utilizing community leadership development and land-based strategies in West Philadelphia.

Over the last two decades, we have partnered with residents of West Philadelphia’s Haddington neighborhood to develop and sustain community-driven greening and gardening projects.  Our network of garden and farm sites are spaces for communal growing, gathering and education to foster deep community engagement and leadership development for residents of all ages, and to build healthy sustainable community.
Philadelphia Interfaith Hospitality Network (PIHN)

seeks to end family homelessness in Philadelphia by mobilizing volunteers and community resources to meet neighbors’ emergency needs (shelter, food and clothing); and by providing continued guidance and support to achieve self-sufficiency in affordable housing.

PIHN promotes lasting solutions to homelessness by building relationships between caring volunteers and families who are homeless; and by advocating for public policies that support employment, access to education, and affordable housing opportunities.

Philadelphia Foundation

has a century-long history of connecting community-minded individuals with the people and organizations that are helping to build a Greater Philadelphia Region.  With deep relationships in the community and intimate knowledge of local nonprofits, we collaborate with individuals, families and businesses to magnify charitable and philanthropic impact.  From Ben Franklin’s civic gift of 1,000 pounds sterling to Gerry Lenfest’s endowment for independent journalism, the Philadelphia Foundation stewards legacies that strengthen the place we call home, improving lives today and for future generations.
