At its fall conference on November 15, Delaware Valley Grantmakers announced their new organization name, Philanthropy Network Greater Philadelphia. Watch a two-minute animated video introducing their new name.
Philanthropy Network feels its new name is a better representation of the way philanthropy works together in their region. As the nonprofit sector has grown and diversified, the term “philanthropy” has become mainstream. In the 25 years that the organization was Delaware Valley Grantmakers, there has been more emphasis on achieving outcomes and collaboration.
“As philanthropy and our region have evolved, we concluded that the time was right to take on a new name and graphic look that better reflects the full breadth and energy of the people and organizations active in philanthropy in Greater Philadelphia,” said Debra A. Kahn, Executive Director of Philanthropy Network Greater Philadelphia .
The organization has also introduced a new tag line, “Smarter Giving, Greater Good,” to sum up their central tenets.
Philanthropy Network will continue to foster connections and collaborations to enhance the impact of local philanthropy, as it brings funders together with civic leaders, government, and community organizations to address areas of mutual interest.
On December 3, Philanthropy Network will launch their twitter handle, @philanthropyPHL, also the Philadelphia region’s giving day, #GivingTuesdayPHL .
