Our Story

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.

Our Values

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.

Functional Empathy

Respect and understanding allows each of us to reach our full potential.

Balance

Our best work happens with balance and flexibility to address individual needs.

Diversity

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.
