Overviewssss

The Community Fund for Immigrant Wellness serves diverse immigrant communities throughout Southeastern Pennsylvania by providing financial support and capacity building to organizations that remove barriers and provide opportunities for individuals to live with dignity and joy. Innovative in its approach, the Community Fund alters the traditional process of philanthropic giving and shifts grantmaking power and responsibility to community-based, immigrant-serving organizations. Ultimately, this process shifts the power dynamic in the funder-grantee relationship by asking service providers to not only inform a funding process but to drive it.

At its core, the Community Fund’s approach is asset driven, drawing on the tremendous expertise, commitment, and resilience of the immigrant and refugee communities in Southeastern PA.

Applications for the 2024 grant cycle are now open. To apply, please click here.
