|What We Do|
Golden Slipper isn't just a charity... it's a passion.
Through a variety of philanthropic endeavors, Slipper fosters an atmosphere of giving and friendship. We boast about our "hands-on" approach, and it's true. Our members give from their hearts - financially, through their expertise, their time, and their teamwork - to help the organization maintain and grow an unmatched summer camp for children, a college scholarship fund for deserving students, a welcoming center for senior citizens, and many other initiatives. Visit our Charitable Programs page for more information. Slipper is comprised of hundreds of individuals of all ages who give back to the Club year after year, generation after generation because they are passionate about what Slipper does.
In return, members "get" infinitely more than they "give." Namely, the pride of helping the community, the joy of seeing the fruits of their labor come to life, and the camaraderie that comes with being actively involved.
This passion dates back to 1922, when a group of Jewish Masons gathered regularly to socialize and play cards. They'd divide up their winnings and distribute them to families in need of money for food, coal, and other essentials. These selfless acts of kindness are the roots and the inspiration of Golden Slipper Club & Charities, now nearly 600 members strong.
Today the tradition continues. Golden Slipper continually finds ways to serve young and old. Operated almost exclusively by members and volunteers, Golden Slipper Club takes pride in serving the Greater Philadelphia region.
