PHISIM, the nickname for our Foundation whose formal name is the Philadelphia Philanthropic Society for Information Technology Foundation Inc, is a bridge to the community for Philadelphia area Information Technology leaders. We are a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization that focuses on charitable activities that involve Information Technology. We are primarily funded by the Philadelphia chapter of the Society for Information Management International and its members who are leaders in IT from government, academia, and business.
Our initial activities will be to provide funding for scholarships in IT related disciplines in local universities and for teen computer camps run by other non-profits. We hope to add many more activities in the future.
PHISIM and our sister organization, SIM Philadelphia, will run events, such as the annual golf outing, to raise funds. We welcome contributions from individuals and companies as well. As a charitable organization, these contributions to PHISIM are tax deductible under the IRS tax code, section 501 (c) 3.
