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.
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.
