The Alliance Française de Philadelphie is a self-funded, member supported nonprofit organization.

As such, we rely heavily on your donations and membership fees to offer high quality French cultural and educational programs to the Philadelphia community.  While we are a branch of the Alliance Française headquartered in Paris, it is the generosity of people like you that helps the Alliance continue its mission.
