Perpetuating the ongoing work of The Philadelphia Foundation (TPF) in 2016 were 1,664 individuals, families, companies and organizations who generously contributed $52,848,566 between Jan. 1 and Dec. 31, 2016.

The Philadelphia Foundation salutes and thanks all those who have established or contributed to TPF funds that provide enduring philanthropic resources for Greater Philadelphia!

Thanks to their heart and vision, we will be able to continue to support and sustain those community organizations and initiatives that teach our children, train our future workforce, heal us, entertain and inspire us, preserve our natural spaces and provide social services to those most in need.

Gifts were gratefully received through the establishment of 24 new funds totaling $4.2 million, as well as contributions to existing funds. In addition, donors established Charitable Gift Annuities, which will provide them with income now and will support the causes they care about far into the future.

Listed here are those who gave a cumulative total of $1,000 or more. Some donors chose to make their contributions anonymously, and we have honored their wishes.
