Remember back in March when we told you how the Philadelphia Foundation was marking its centennial year by distributing $1M in funding to regional nonprofits selected by a public vote? Well, it’s here — the time to vote is now.

Fifteen deserving nonprofits are Key to Community grant contenders, and you can cast one ballot per day for them, through July 26. Nine grants will be awarded —three first-place $200,000 grants, three second-place $100,000 grants and three third-place $33,000 grants — across three categories:

  • Economic Prosperity grants will fund programs that aim to enhance paths to financial stability and success, especially for those in low- to moderate-income communities.
  • The Opportunity Divide grants will fund programs that improve equal access to the advantages of technology and digital skills that propel economic mobility.
  • Community and Civic Engagement grants will fund programs that aim to widen participation and community connections and increase equity in the region.

There are five contenders in each category, and some of the organizations vying for the grants  are making their case for your vote on Twitter:

“This is a wonderful opportunity to bring together the entire Greater Philadelphia region to vote for inspiring initiatives that are based around building stronger communities,” said Pedro Ramos, president and CEO of the Philadelphia Foundation. “It’s also a chance for the public at large to learn more about the nonprofits that are moving our communities forward with innovative solutions. We encourage everyone to vote and tell their networks to vote.”

Voting will be limited to one ballot cast from any given IP or email address per day in each of the three categories.
