WHO WE ARE

The Pincus Family Foundation was formed in 2005 by Philadelphia philanthropists David and Gerry Pincus who dedicated themselves to learning first-hand about the challenges children face worldwide, then helping to address those challenges.

 The Pincus Family Foundation supports organizations and programs promoting children’s health, education, safety, nutrition, recreation and the arts locally and worldwide. 

“You get involved…you’re supposed to not just think about your own life. You’re supposed to do things for other people.” —David Pincus
