Support PEF and Our Students

Ariana, Naomi, and Cedrick are just 3 of the 109 of Philadelphia high school graduates we helped with economically-based, gap-filling scholarships this 2021-22 academic year. Although we have the largest non-university affiliated scholarship fund in Philadelphia, we exhaust our funds before we can meet the needs of all eligible students.

Your support is key in allowing us to continue our critical work of helping Philadelphia’s under-resourced youth build pathways to college and career success.

To maximize your PEF donation, we recommend giving via Direct Debit (ACH), as fees on credit card transations reduce your gift by almost 3%. To make a contribution via check, please send to:
