Support PEF and Our Students

Anayah, Naniushka, Queen-Roszia, and Yeimi are just 4 of the more than 125 Philadelphia high school graduates we helped with economically-based, gap-filling college scholarships this 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. Please consider donating to the Scholarship fund to help more students every year!
