Thank you to all who helped us successfully raise more than $125,000 at our 2021 Educate Philly Gala last June. Our new fiscal year began July 1st, and your donation will help us meet this year’s challenges and opportunities.

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, contact Alison Foster, Director of Development at
