Young Philanthropists

Impact100 Philadelphia is committed to engaging the next generation of women in giving. Young Philanthropists enrich our work through their perspective, experience, and passion. Impact100 Philadelphia offers two ways for young women to join.

Founders Fellowship

Please note:  The 2020 Founders Fellowship application is available HERE. The application period is July 1 to 31.

Each year, Impact100 Philadelphia invites a group of young women to join the organization through the Founders Fellowship program. Fellowships are available to women ages 25 – 35 who demonstrate a commitment to philanthropy and service.

Fellows are chosen through a competitive interview process each summer and participate as full members of Impact100 Philadelphia throughout the grant year. Fellows who demonstrate leadership are invited to continue as Senior Fellows in subsequent years.

Through the generosity of our program supporters, all membership fees are waived for first-year Fellows.
