Apply for a Grant

Thank you for your interest in applying for a grant from The Cosmopolitan Club of Philadelphia Giving Circle (CCPGC)

Selection Process:
Each year, CCPGC Members choose a focus area for the grant. We then solicit grant applications from nonprofits working in the selected areas of focus. A grants committee reviews all the proposals and may make site visits. Finalists will be selected to make presentations to the full CCPGC membership who will then vote and decide which organization will receive the grant.

The Philadelphia Foundation: CCPGC has established a donor-advised fund with The Philadelphia Foundation, a well-known and trusted community philanthropic and financial partner that will serve as the administrator of our fund as well as provide guidance to the CCPGC leadership.

Eligibility Requirements: Applicant organizations must be located in the Greater Philadelphia area.  They must have a 501(c)(3) public charity exempt status from the IRS.
