In its role as grantmaker, the Philadelphia City Fund supports innovative projects led by both community groups and City offices. We administer two different grant programs: our Community Fund and our Innovation Fund.
The Philadelphia City Fund receives proceeds generated by the Philadelphia Marathon and uses those dollars to fund charitable community projects across the city through the Community Fund. Since 2014, this resource has benefitted Philadelphians across the region in many different ways.
Learn more about current grants offered through the Community Fund and how the Philadelphia Marathon makes this grantmaking program possible.
We also use the fees generated by our work as a fiscal sponsor to invest in City projects through our Innovation Fund, designed to launch pilot initiatives that have the potential to improve the services and functions of municipal government.
