The Promise

Philadelphia is the poorest big city in the nation. Let’s change that. 

In 2020, United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey teamed up with the City of Philadelphia to launch The Promise—a first-of-its-kind collaboration between government, business, philanthropy, and anchor institutions. 

With a $10M initial investment from the City of Philadelphia bolstered by matching dollars from the private sector, the Promise will create and support opportunities for an equitable recovery from the pandemic. 



The Knowledge Center

Providing insightful analysis and data about challenges in United Way communities 

Brought to you by United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey, the Knowledge Center will use evidence to guide solutions that alleviate poverty and improve life outcomes for people experiencing poverty. It will also dramatically increase our region’s understanding of the drivers of poverty and what impact investments yield.
