Mission

Germantown United Community Development Corporation (GU) is a nonprofit serving the Germantown neighborhood in the City of Philadelphia. Germantown is one of the most historic, economically and racially diverse, and civically active communities in this city. Our mission is "to promote and facilitate the revitalization of Germantown and its business corridors through a sustainable, creative, and community-driven approach to economic development."

Our vision is for a Germantown community that embraces and builds upon its rich diversity of residents, businesses, and institutions engaged in and committed to equitable development for everyone.

What We Do

Today, Germantown United CDC is the "go-to" organization for community-driven economic development activities and supportive services for the business community, specifically microenterprises, and residents. GU proudly: advances neighborhood revitalization efforts, including (but not limited to) the following activities: provides weekly sidewalk cleaning in the Central Germantown shopping district; implements small greening and beautification projects; encourages community building and civic engagement through workshops, informational meetings, special events, and communication efforts; and, advances the quality of life of Germantown residents, particularly those residents who are traditionally underserved.
