About the Giving Circle

Making a Difference in the Lives of Women and Children in Our Community!

Founded in 2016, The Cosmopolitan Club of Philadelphia Giving Circle is dedicated to awarding grants to not-for-profit organizations that benefit women and children in the community.

About Us:
We are a group of members of the Cosmopolitan Club of Philadelphia who pool our financial resources, decide on an area of focus, and work together to select a non-profit organization to receive a grant for that year.  The Giving Circle has established a donor-advised fund with the Philadelphia Foundation. All gifts are made directly to the Foundation and are tax-free charitable donations.

In 2019, we will be awarding a grant of $25,000 to an organization benefiting women and children facing homelessness.

Our Goals:
  • Improve the quality of life for women and children in the community.
  • Become more informed about social problems affecting women and children in our community and about the not-for-profit organizations striving to help them.
  • Educate our donors/members about the power of collective philanthropy and how by pooling our resources we can make a greater impact for positive change within our community.
  • Strengthen the bonds of our membership as we work together for the common good.
