The Promise, Philadelphia’s Poverty Action Fund, powered by United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey, is a city-wide coalition dedicated to lifting 100,000 Philadelphians out of poverty.

Combining City funding and private donations, The Promise invests in hands-on services by community-based organizations who work collaboratively to help low-income Philadelphians gain access to benefits and opportunities for upward mobility, creating a more equitable Philadelphia.
