PHISIM 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.
PHISIM, as the sister organization of SIM Philadelphia, represents the desire on the part of the leaders of Information Technology in the Delaware Valley region to give back to the community and to participate in the betterment of students and technology education. Just as the Ben Franklin bridge connects Pennsylvania and New Jersey, PHISIM strives to connect the members of the IT community to the community in need.
Our primary activities include funding scholarships to students in Philadelphia area universities with majors in IT related disciplines, providing funding for teen computer camps run by other non-profits, and donating technological equipment to Philadelphia area elementary schools. We hope to add many more activities in the future!
PHISIM and our sister organization, SIM Philadelphia, run events such as the annual "Golf Outing & Summer Social" and our "PHISIM Phanatics - Evening of Baseball" 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.
