We launched Fairmount Ventures in 1992 as a social impact business to help create the world we all want to live in – where community and connection are valued and everyone has equal access to the resources and support needed to live healthy, joyful, resilient lives. Our multi-disciplinary team provides unvarnished insights, deep understanding of the Philadelphia region, a rich set of connections, and unparalleled access to funding for nonprofit and public sector organizations. The goal? To strengthen, accelerate, and transform our clients’ impact in their communities.
Six values guide everything we do.
Thought Partnership & Teamwork
Collaboration enriches our work and our outcomes.
Excellence & Effort
Growth and learning are as important as superior results.
Respect and understanding allows each of us to reach our full potential.
Our best work happens with balance and flexibility to address individual needs.
Inclusion, education, and self-examination around race, class, gender, identity, privilege, and work and life experiences are central to a diverse, culturally competent workplace.
Courage & Candor
We dream big, trust our instincts and limits, and communicate openly with candor.
Fairmount designs each of our consulting engagements to fuel our clients’ growth and success. We demonstrate our impact every day in the stories of people aided by our clients’ missions, the buildings and public spaces we’ve helped to create, and the new funding that grows a successful program to scale. Our numbers tell the story:
