Leave a Legacy

Bold Ideas to Help Build a More Equitable Philadelphia

Brand Circle

Leave a Legacy is a new, people-centric model for how we leave behind meaningful, lasting legacies from this once-in-a-generation opportunity, leveraging the energy, excitement, and investment around the 250th anniversary. 

PHILADELPHIA250’s vision is that our legacies are 100 percent community-sourced, designed and built by Philadelphians, for Philadelphians. They are bold, creative, and important ideas that will leave behind a legacy of positive social impact and promote equitable and sustainable community transformation.

Creating a Legacy Community

PHILADELPHIA250 is building a citywide community of legacy projects in two ways: 

  • Supporting and sustaining our own official Legacies for the 250th, projects that were identified and selected through a public call for ideas from the community; and 
  • Challenging institutions both large and small in Philadelphia to stand up and pledge a 250th Legacy Goal, leading to a groundswell of energy and investment across all neighborhoods and a citywide community of impact and transformation.

To find out how your organization can get involved in the Legacy Community, contact legacy@philadelphia250.us.
