The recipients were selected from 87 organizations and individuals who applied following their  participation in On the Table Philly conversations on Oct. 17, 2019. On that day, close to 6,000  people gathered around more than 460 tables to discuss what is key to community.  The On the Table Philly initiative has been hosted for the past three years by Philadelphia  Foundation with support from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.  “We support these conversations and connections because they are how change happens,” said Philadelphia Foundation President & CEO Pedro A. Ramos. “The projects funded through these  grants will support a variety of topics – census participation, small ongoing conversations,  working with schools on gun violence, helping college students destigmatize mental health  challenges – all of which were inspired by On the Table Philly.” Grantees include the UUH Outreach Program, which is developing an event for adults who care for older adults in their professional roles. The collaborative event will include development of  a self-care kit of effective techniques to share with the greater caregiving community.
