The Henrietta Tower Wurts Memorial is a charitable foundation formed to carry out the wishes of Henrietta Tower Wurts, who passed away in 1933.
It supports programs in which a modest grant can play a significant part and which have meaningful goals in relation to the total resources committed to them.
The Philadelphia Foundation provides administrative and management support services for the memorial. We receive grant applications and distribute grants approved by the Wurts Memorial’s Board of Directors.
