ABOUT PINCUS FAMILY FOUNDATION
PFF was formed in 2005 by Philadelphia philanthropists, the late David and Gerry Pincus, who dedicated themselves to learning first-hand about the challenges children face worldwide, then helping to address those challenges. PFF supports organizations and programs promoting children’s health, education, safety, nutrition, recreation and the arts in underserved communities locally and worldwide.
The Pincus Family Foundation’s mission is “…for the well-being of children” and proudly supports organizations that focus on improving the lives of children. The Foundation is keen to work with organizations that take diverse approaches to this broad topic.
