Community & Social Service Initiatives

More than Providing Service


The Trust strives to create economic and community development opportunities, by using our resources to advocate on behalf of impoverished people based on Reverend Leon H. Sullivan’s Principles of self help, social responsibility and human rights.


 At Leon H. Sullivan Charitable Trust, we believe, as a community and as individuals, that it is our duty to be there for those in our community that are underserved.  We welcome donations and support of any kind, as well as business partnerships.

Contact our offices at 215-684-3400 to speak with us about our programs and services.


"You can't reason with a man who is hungry.  You have first to give him food to eat."

4.  Although the verification of enrollment is important, it is not required unless you are a winner.  Thus your package is complete, if everything else is included.
