The Global Philadelphia Association was founded in 2010 by nine of the leading international organizations in the Greater Philadelphia Region. It has been incorporated as a member-governed Pennsylvania nonprofit corporation whose purposes are:
To assist – and to encourage greater interaction among – the many organizations and people who are engaged in one form or another of international activity within the Greater Philadelphia Region;
to promote the development of an international consciousness within the Region; to enhance the Region’s global profile.
Today, over 100 organizations, businesses, and internationally-minded individuals have become joint ventures in the Global Philadelphia initiative, and more are joining each month.
