Giveadelphia, a committee of young professionals, launched in the summer of 2019 and has gained massive traction in just a few short months. A Philadelphia based organization, their mission is to introduce a new wave of giving to local non-profits in need of participation, awareness and financial support. Their unique platform identifies like-minded individuals who are interested in philanthropy but do not know where or how to focus their efforts. Through social gatherings and special events, Giveadelphia matches these individuals with local charities interested in building their reach while offering young professionals a conduit to give back.
The Giveadelphia team was built by Michael Rabinowitz, a local Philadelphian who grew up in the local suburbs and has since started a career in Center City with a prestigious brokerage firm. Encouraged by the community around him, Michael shares his commitment to the city by leading the Giveadelphia organization as Founder and Executive Director. “The young professionals of Philadelphia have an opportunity to impact the city in which they live and serve and actually build a community that doesn’t just talk about giving back but takes an active part in building a new wave, or generation, of giving for the under served communities of Philadelphia.
We want to start right here in our backyard and raise awareness for local non-profits that do not garner the same amount of attention of larger organizations around the area. It is of tremendous importance to highlight these lesser known organizations and I am excited to create a link between young professionals eager to give back and those who need it most.”
Giveadelphia will launch into the new year with their inaugural event, the Love Back Ball. The Love Back Ball is an annual event hosted by the committee members of Giveadelphia. Inspired by the local communities in which young professionals of the Philadelphia area live and serve, The Love Back Ball combines fun, connection and charity in one premier event. Each year, the Giveadelphia committee nominates a different charity to receive the benefits from the ball. Party goers are not only encouraged to give back through ticket sales, but also through donations, drives, fundraising and supporting events throughout the year.
This year, the Love Back Ball will benefit The R.E.L.I.E.F. Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization based in Blue Bell, Pennsylvania. All donations and proceeds will directly benefit the non-profit selected annually by Giveadelphia. Nominations for the 2021 beneficiary will be announced early spring following a series of applications found on their website, www.giveadelphia.com.
Giveadelphia sends a special thanks to their leading sponsors: Moda Matters, APM Real Estate, Randy Barker of Compass Inc, Grovara and Prelude Solutions.
