About the Fund
What We Do
The Mayor’s Fund for Philadelphia fosters collaboration between the public, private, and non-profit sectors to ensure Philadelphia becomes a safer, smarter, and more vibrant community. We work with and for three stakeholder groups to improve the quality of life for all Philadelphians:
The City of Philadelphia
The Mayor’s Fund for Philadelphia is a fiscal agent for the City of Philadelphia, working to build the capacity of municipal projects and programs that address Philadelphia’s greatest needs. As an independent nonprofit organization, the Mayor’s Fund enables City agencies to vie for private support through the use of our 501(c)(3) umbrella. We provide strong financial management and performance, and the administrative infrastructure to act quickly and flexibly, helping to build and sustain the City’s priority programs.
Private Sector and Individual Funders
The Mayor’s Fund serves as a vehicle for individuals, foundations, and corporations to contribute to City projects and programs. We steward private and individual funds with transparency and integrity, acting as the backbone structure for public-private partnerships that benefit the City’s priority programs. By leveraging private sector support with the scale and the resources of the public sector, we help increase the value and impact of philanthropic contributions.
We work to generate a broad understanding of Mayoral priorities and the impact of cross-sector collaboration. We celebrate the success of the many public initiatives that keep the our city moving forward toward a healthy, prosperous, and sustainable future.
