About Us

Philanthropy Network Greater Philadelphia is the region’s membership association for organizations and individuals active in philanthropy. Our 150+ members represent a broad spectrum of funder types, interests and approaches that reflect the increasing diversity of philanthropy. Our purpose is to educate and inspire members to do their best giving.



Philanthropy Responding to Disaster

In the wake of the mass shooting at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando,the Forum of Regional Associations of Grantmakers co-hosted the National Teleconference for Funders: Response to Orlando Shooting, the first in a three-part teleconference series for funders concerned about how to best respond to the Orlando tragedy. Download a recording of the 6/22 teleconference here, and stay tuned for information about subsequent teleconferences that will focus on the community groups working on the front lines in Orlando and the longer-term needs and responses. For ongoing news and updates, visit the website of our colleagues at the Florida Philanthropic Network.

More recently, devastating flooding across West Virginia has left more than 20 dead and thousands homeless. In the wake of the third deadliest flooding event in their history, the state is grappling with emergency response and facing a prolonged clean-up and recovery effort. Philanthropy West Virginia has established a page on their website where funders can find information on a variety of resources to volunteer, donate, and provide immediate and long-term recovery assistance.

Additional information can be found at Center for Disaster Philanthropy's Disaster Philanthropy Playbook.
