The Power of Collective Giving
Help Needed | Nominate Deserving Nonprofits for Coronavirus donation
We need your help! To address the immediacy of the coronavirus crisis the TTN Giving Circle will provide a $10,000 donation from our 2020 fund to a nonprofit organization serving women and/or children in Philadelphia negatively affected by this crisis. We are currently researching nonprofit organizations as possible donation recipients. Nominated nonprofits will, in some way, be addressing an urgent need created by the crisis.
Email TTNPhiladelphiaGivingCircle@gmail.com to nominate a deserving organization by APRIL 8th
A sub-group of the Grants Committee will review the nominations to identify a short list of finalist organizations for Giving Circle vote. The donation recipient will be selected by the Giving Circle voting contributors. Our goal- get funds to the organization ASAP. It is through you that the power of our collective giving can make a difference at this trying time.
Appreciation for our Contributors
The TTN Giving Circle is a group of women who pool their giving dollars to make a difference in the lives of the women and children in Philadelphia area.
Each year since 2013 we have made a joint decision to identify the non-profit that will receive our grant. In the process we have learned about the vast and varied needs of Philadelphia women and children and the remarkable people who are dedicated to meeting those needs.
See the impact we have made! Read about our past recipients.Sadly, Dr. Ethel Schwartz Weinberg, one of the founding members of the Philadelphia Giving Circle recently passed away. Please click here to read a lovely tribute to her.
Become a Voting Member of the Giving Circle with a donation of $200 or more. Contributions made during 2020 will support our 2021 grant.
Donations in smaller amounts are also welcome.
