Generocity’s goal is to illuminate and challenge our local philanthropic landscape; hold its leadership, practices, and successes, its members, and our community accountable; while offering insights and resources to help you understand “how local policy impacts issues and the needs of the local community,” which leaders are effectively “working to influence problems and solutions in Philadelphia,” and what “resources” are available to support you and our community.
We’re always looking for new voices to chronicle how social impact organizations are changing Philadelphia. Think: nonprofits, philanthropy, social enterprises, local government.
From investigative reporting and opinion pieces to crowdsourced solutions and advocacy, our 2023 calendar will take a look at the work being done, the lived experience and voices of those affected, and what still needs to change to make a real difference.
