More About the Friends

Friends of the Welcoming Center is a group of professionals from the Philadelphia area dedicated to strengthening the Welcoming Center’s mission of connecting newly arrived individuals from around the world with the economic opportunities that they need to succeed in our region.

Members of this philanthropic networking professional group have the opportunity to make new friends and meet like-minded individuals who are committed to making our region a magnet for immigrants so that it may become a more vibrant, creative, and dynamic competitor in today’s global economy. 

In addition to membership in one of Philadelphia’s most distinctive non-profit organizations, Friends receive many benefits, which include happy hours and cocktail parties, networking events, and discounted tickets to the Center’s annual fundraising events.
