Mayor Kenney: we need your leadership to reinstate PILOTs!

Here in Philly, mega-nonprofits like U. Penn and Jefferson make billions a year, use city services, take up tremendous amounts of valuable land--yet they pay almost nothing in the property taxes that fund our our schools and city services like firefighting and street repair.

By reinstating a PILOT (payments in lieu of taxes) program like the one then-Mayor Rendell ran in the 1990's, Mayor Kenney could raise $38 million for public schools and services.

Our schools are in dire straits, and need this funding more than ever.
