Philly Stake is a recurring event celebrating locally sourced food and creative community projects; organized completely by volunteers. Stake dinners are seasonal meals sourced from local farms and purveyors. At each dinner, project proposals are presented to the diners. Community members pay a $20 donation for dinner and an opportunity to vote for the project they deem most worthy of funding. These projects aim to contribute to the vitality of Philadelphia in a multitude of innovative ways. Awardees will leave with the dinner proceeds and will present their project at the next meal.

*Philly Stake grants are project specific; they cannot fund an artist's individual studio work, nor art gallery/non-profit organizations' overall work.

A stake in the arts and in creative thought
