Mother-and-daughter team Pam and Emily Philipp founded Operation Glass Slipper in 2006 to help high-school girls prepare for their proms. Girls who cannot afford the high cost of attending and outfitting themselves for prom can confide in a trusted adult from their school or community to obtain a referral to the program. The girls then choose a dress, purse, shoes, a necklace, and earrings from Operation Glass Slipper's inventory, which is made up primarily of new shoes and accessories and donated dresses, although the organization must purchase additional dresses to fill gaps in sizes. The girls can also bring a female companion to help them shop. Since its inception, Operation Glass Slipper has outfitted more than 1,000 girls for prom each year.

By improving postoperative instruction, Children's Heartlink hopes to reduce infection rates and other complications, and prevent return hospitalizations. Children’s HeartLink has already launched the PEDI project at one Indian hospital and plans to expand to two other hospitals in India, including Innova Heart Hospital in Hyderabad, as well as to share its materials with other hospitals online.

Music in the Schools (MIS), the Sinfonia’s inner-city education program, supports artistic learning for nearly 12,000 elementary students from 19 area schools, injecting classical music into their core curriculum. Visiting individual classes, professional musicians share their experiences with students while deftly blending mathematics, literature, history, and the sciences into the chords and rhythms of famous masterworks. As the culmination of this program, students in each school gather with the full orchestra for Sinfonia Day, an interactive concert where the children perform with the Sinfonia for their friends and families and share what they learned through the study of music.
