Since Fels has a small budget–approximately $2 million in the next few years–we could not possibly provide ongoing operating support to hundreds of organizations. We prefer to make grants on a modest scale, but to try to have a maximum impact on institutions and service patterns in Philadelphia. Grants at Fels range in size from $3,000 to $30,000. Occasionally, we make a larger grant in an exceptional situation. Please review our listing of Recent Grants to get a good picture of our scope.
