Fundraising Gala and Events Manager: Emily’s Entourage

Emily’s Entourage (EE) speeds lifesaving research and drug development for individuals in the final 10% of the cystic fibrosis (CF) community that do not benefit from currently available mutation-targeted therapies. Founded by Emily Kramer-Golinkoff with family and friends in 2011, EE has awarded millions of dollars in research grants, launched a now-acquired CF gene therapy company, developed a patient registry and clinical trial matchmaking program to accelerate clinical trial recruitment, and led worldwide efforts to drive high-impact research and drug development.

While the urgency of the organization is inspired by Emily’s advanced-stage disease, the work of EE gives impetus to advances that can benefit not only people with CF, but also millions of people living with genetic diseases, as well as those combating antibiotic-resistant infections for whom there are no existing treatments.

Executive Director: The Leeway Foundation

The Leeway Foundation supports women and trans artists and cultural producers working in communities at the intersection of art, culture, and social change. Through their grantmaking and other programs, they promote artistic expression that amplifies the voices of those on the margins, promotes sustainable and healthy communities, and works in the service of movements for economic and social justice. At a pivotal moment of change with Leeway’s long-time leader moving on, Leeway now invites applications and nominations for its next Executive Director.

The Executive Director will lead an exemplary staff, in partnership with a committed board, to continue to fund the impactful work of cultural producers in the Philadelphia area, expand resources deployed to support grantees and applicants, and influence the field of philanthropy to shift power to artists and communities they support.


Leeway believes that art is a vital tool for community building, self-expression, and individual and collective transformation. Art can bridge differences, center those who have been on the margins, and challenge and connect communities and individuals to live in peaceful coexistence. The organization and its people envision a world in which art flourishes in many forms as the cultural life blood of communities, where all have access to creative expression regardless of who they are, and where art and art-making is considered an essential element of our collective efforts to create a more just, peaceful world where all can live in dignity. Leeway’s guiding values are community, diversity, continuity, integrity, opportunity, originality, and social impact, as further detailed on its website.

At present, Leeway invests in artists through a range of grantmaking programs and other supports, including:

  • Susan DiPronio (ACG’07, LTA’13)
  • Sistah Mafalda (ACG’13, WOO’17)
  • Rasheedah Phillips & Camae Ayewa (ACG’07, LTA’15), aka Black Quantum Futurism
  • Sosena Solomon (ACG’13, LTA’14)

Art and Change Grant (ACG) provides grants of up to $2,500 for projects by women, trans, and/or gender nonconforming artists and cultural producers living in Greater Philadelphia and working on art for social change. Awarded projects must be supported by or in collaboration with a change partner (person, organization, or business that is part of the project).

Leeway Transformation Awards (LTA) are unrestricted annual awards of $15,000 to women, trans, and gender non-conforming artists and cultural producers living in Philadelphia who have a track record of creating art for social change that impacts a larger group or audience.

Media Artist + Activist Residency (MAR) provides grants of $25,000 (a $15,000 grant to the artist and a $10,000 grant to the organization) for work that documents, reframes, and/or amplifies the issues and campaigns addressed by the partnered organizations. The aim of this residency is to reveal and extend the ways that artists and the artistic process can work within organizations working towards social change.

Window of Opportunity (WOO) provides financial assistance of up to $1,500 to previous Leeway grant and award recipients who use the funds to take advantage of time- sensitive opportunities to support their art for social change. Those opportunities could be training or development workshops, conferences, residencies, travel, costs associated with documentation of a project, rental of equipment, purchase of materials, or payment of services for outreach or distribution.

Community Care Fund (CCF) provides financial assistance to Leeway grant and award recipients experiencing emergency needs. While planned to sunset, this fund grew out of Leeway’s COVID-19 Relief Fund and is an example of the organization’s responsive and holistic support for its community.

Funded by an initial gift from Philadelphia-based artist Linda Lee Alter in 1993, Leeway Foundation was established “to promote the welfare of women and to benefit the arts” in the five-county Philadelphia area and “encourage their increased recognition and representation in the arts community.” Through the leadership of outgoing Executive Director Denise Brown, Leeway’s commitment to funding women, trans, and gender-nonconforming artists and cultural producers creating work at the intersections of art, culture, and social change came about as the result of the foundation’s intention of finding ways to more fully live out its mission, as did its participatory grantmaking model.

Founded in 1976 by a Montessori educator, PTM is the only children’s museum in the sixth largest city in the nation, Philadelphia, and has been voted a USA TODAY/10 Best Readers’ Choice Top 10 children’s museum four years in a row. Located in Memorial Hall, a National Historic Landmark and one of only two remaining buildings from the Centennial Exposition in 1876, the Museum’s mission is to change a child’s life as they discover the power of learning through play.

Today, the Museum welcomes 400,000 to 500,000 visitors annually, of which 30 percent attend for free or reduced admission. With two floors of fun, the Museum features over 15 permanent exhibits for children to engage with, as well as literacy, science, and creative and performing arts programs.
