It’s a housewarming party, of sorts.
Next week, Generocity be moving with the rest of Technically Media to our long-anticipated new office on the 12th floor of the Curtis Center, 601 Walnut Street, and we want you to join us to celebrate. From 6 to 8 p.m. next Wednesday, we’ll have beers flowing and food aplenty.
We’ll also have lots of time to get to know other Philly leaders while taking the tour of the new office, also home to our sister brand, Technical.ly. It’s the location of the new Benjamin’s Desk coworking space, too — this is your first opportunity to check out the new digs.
You’ll get a quick update on what we’ve been up to in the first six months of Generocity 2.0, and even more importantly, you’ll hear how to make the best out of cross-sector collaborations from local leaders:
- Media Mobilizing Project (MMP) produces media, education and organizing infrastructure for people and organizations across the city. Learn some of the guiding principles it uses to galvanize to local movements from ED Bryan Mercer. We’ll also get a sneak peek at MMP’s new film “Groundwork: Justice in the Birthplace of America.”
- Kate Rivera from Urban Affairs Coalition has helped to spearhead the KEYSPOTS program, bringing internet access to more than 20,000 Philadelphians, as well as the WorkReady program, which last summer employed more than 1500 youth. Find out how those relationships are managed.
- The Free Library recently brought its business resources and nonprofit resources under one roof to maximize how Philly’s citizens can get “good” done. Gillian Robbins and Caitlin Seifritz will talk about how the two programs work together to equip the community.
After a successful INTER/VIEW in April, we are ready to get back to the business of giving you, the leaders and citizens of Philly, more opportunities to share tangible ways we can learn from each other and maximize impact, both in the nonprofit and for-profit sectors.

As you can see by our coverage, there’s much to be learned on both sides. Our goal is for these meetups to be the platform of knowledge sharing, communication and resources for people interested in making an impact.-30-
