This year on December 1, Philadelphia Orchard Project will be participating in #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving!


Last year, more than 30,000 organizations in 68 countries came together to celebrate #GivingTuesday. Since its founding in 2012, #GivingTuesday has inspired giving around the world, resulting in greater donations, volunteer hours, and activities that bring about real change in communities. We invite you to join the movement and to help get out the give this December 1.


There are several ways that you can help Philadelphia Orchard Project this #GivingTuesday:


  • Donate any amount to help us kick off our annual appeal campaign! (The Pomona Fund will be matching all gifts, so you are doubling your impact!)
  • Donate a fruit tree to a community orchard in celebration or honor of a loved one!
  • Post, tweet, and share on social media why you support Philadelphia Orchard Project and community orchards!

Thanks for for supporting our vision of a more beautiful, bountiful Philadelphia!

“A neighborhood teenager who had never tasted an Asian pear—and insisted that he didn’t like pears—was blown away when he bit into a pear from our tree. This sense of discovery and joy is what the orchard is all about to us.” -Andy Jickling, Grumblethorpe Orchard
