Philadelphia Fund Alliance Raises Over $80,000 for Coded by Kids


The Philadelphia Fund Alliance (PFA), a group of Philadelphia-based asset management industry professionals, hosted a virtual auction from Oct. 22 through Nov. 5 to raise funds for Coded by Kids.

The event raised a total of $80,000 for Coded by Kids, a Philadelphia-based nonprofit preparing underrepresented young people to succeed as tech and innovation leaders through project-based learning and mentorship.

Formed in 2016, PFA was created to hold an annual fundraiser to benefit a charity in the Greater Philadelphia area and to celebrate Philadelphia’s deep roots and influence in the registered funds, asset management and alternatives industries. At last year’s PFA gala, over 200 Philadelphia-area asset management professionals raised more than $100,000 for Achieve Now, a nonprofit organization that is dedicated to transforming the educational system in Philadelphia to one that produces students who can read. Since its formation, PFA has raised over $320,000 for Greater Philadelphia area charities.
