Donors & Sponsors

The Philadelphia Citizen is 501(c)(3) organization and is fully funded by the generous support of our corporate and foundation partners, and the citizens of Philadelphia.


Whether you are a foundation looking to support democracy and solutions-journalism or an institution that values civic engagement and citizenship, we will work with you to find the perfect opportunity for partnership! Sponsor an event series, offer in-kind donations, or support Citizen editorial department and programming with the recognition that you deserve.

If your organization subscribes to The Philadelphia Citizen’s belief that promoting greater civic engagement and informed discourse is a direct route to a better and more productive Philadelphia, let’s talk. Corporate and foundation donors play no role in guiding the journalism produced by The Citizen.
