Every year, Philadelphia magazine does a roundup of the city’s most “influential” residents.

That term, as discussed in the package’s introduction, is nebulous: Influential to whom? In what way? Good or bad?

We’re excited to see a number of people who have appeared in the virtual pages of Generocity. This year’s jam-packed list includes the likes of:
