Since 1831, our foundation has provided critical funding and support to organizations that assist and enrich the lives of the poor, disadvantaged, elderly, and youth of Philadelphia.

Welcome to the

Union Benevolent Association

We invite you to explore our site to learn more about our organization’s history, board of directors, and the types of organizations and/or projects that we typically fund. Please visit the Apply for Grants section for detailed information, instructions, and helpful tips. UBA only funds organizations within Philadelphia. Support is limited to three years out of every five. Grants are modest. Now, as always, we support organizations whose work is of direct benefit to those in our community who need it most.
