Who We Are

The Charter Foundation received funding July 1, 2010 and has assumed certain multi-year grant commitments. The assumption of these commitments will mean that there will be limited resources for us to be able to fund all of the many worthy organizations that apply.

The Foundation has been founded and is being run by a family with strong ties to the Philadelphia area and that is where the majority of The Foundation’s grantmaking will be made. Worthy organizations and their programs and capital needs will be considered through an on line application process.




The Charter Foundation is run entirely by its Board of Trustees.

The current Trustees are:
Leila Gordon
Hunter R. Gordon
C. Scott Gordon


Previous Trustees:
Joseph K. Gordon, Esq.
Ray McLean Gordon
