Host a Friendraiser
Planning a big blowout birthday party? Or, a simple get-together with heavy hors d’oeuvres? Putting on a special concert? Or, just looking to add meaning to office dress-down days or your next golf or tennis outing? Consider using these ready-made events to raise friends, raise funds, and generally, build awareness for the Philadelphia Education Fund.
With the PEF Friendraising Toolkit, it’s easy to transform any event to a mission-serving affair. To learn more about hosting a Friendraiser, contact Alysse Szur, Development Manager.
