Philadelphia Bar Foundation Grant Impact

The Philadelphia Bar Foundation's support enhances CeaseFirePA's ability to create an educated, confident corps of activists advocating for safer communities in several ways. The Bar Foundation's grants have enabled CeaseFirePA to reach more partners, groups and individuals through the organization's outreach and educational programs. The seal of approval from the Philadelphia Bar Foundation helps CeaseFirePA to fundraise from other donors, law firms, and foundations that know the value of the Bar Foundation's vote of confidence. Participation in the Philadelphia Bar Foundation's Raising the Bar campaign also helps CeaseFirePA raise additional needed funds. Additionally, the grants recognize CeaseFirePA as a key partner in the community, and enhances its ability to work with existing partners and develop new alliances.

Summary List of Priorities for Client Intake

CeaseFirePA works to educate the public and advocate for policy change. While we work with community groups and affected individuals, we do not represent them as clients, so we don't have a typical intake process.
