Valentine Foundation

Visionary Leadership Fund


The Visionary Leadership Fund is a separate endowment managed by the Valentine Foundation. Created in 2005, this endowment provides a dedicated source of funding for leadership training for women executives in the non-profit sector. The purpose of the Fund is to strengthen the organizations that improve the lives of women and girls in the Greater Philadelphia region.

  • Making current women leaders more effective
  • Developing the next generation of women leaders
  • Fostering a community of women leaders

Please Note: Applications to the Visionary Leadership Fund are separate from applications to the Valentine Foundation. The guidelines and criteria for approval are distinct and decisions affecting one request will not necessarily apply to any other. Organizations are eligible to submit applications to both The Valentine Foundation and the The Visionary Leadership Fund in the same grant year.

Visionary Leadership Fund Grants will only be made to qualifying organizations and will not be made to individuals.
