Take action. Support POWER.

Become a POWER donor today! Click here.

POWER is independently financed.  We operate with dues from member congregations, grants from charitable and faith-based foundations, grassroots fund raising and contributions from people like you who care about our city and want to see change.  As a matter of principle, POWER takes no financial support from government entities.

We appreciate your one-time donation, or to become a POWER “Sustainer”, a recurring donation of $50/month.

Volunteer with POWER

In addition to being a POWER leader in your congregation, you can offer your time and talents to POWER in the following ways:

  • Helping create and manage our growing mailing list through data entry work
  • Helping communicate with POWER members through periodic phone banking

Involve your congregation

Interested in learning more about how to build leadership within your congregation, amplify your prophetic voice, strengthen community and address the issues impacting your people?

Then give us a call.

We welcome a conversation with you about pressures impacting your congregation and community and how faith-based community organizing can help you respond. We welcome a conversation about how POWER is equipping congregations across the city to play a more powerful role in shaping policies that effect families, neighborhoods, and our city.

Give us a call at 215-232-7697 or email us at info@powerphiladelphia.org and we’ll set up a time to talk.

We are looking forward to the conversation.
