The Philadelphia Education Fund

The mission of the Philadelphia Education Fund is to improve the quality of public education in Philadelphia and the region, so that youth are prepared for college and careers. Over the next three years, our work will be guided by the following institutional strategic goals:  Increase the number of secondary schools that are high performing; Increase the number of public school students who access postsecondary education and persist to completion; Position the Philadelphia region as central to state and national dialogues about improving public education.

In collaboration with schools, school districts, and other partners, the Philadelphia Education Fund’s work falls into four distinct areas:  enhancing teaching and learning; directly assisting students to access and succeed in postsecondary education; convening public education stakeholders in support of school reform policy and practice; and informing and engaging citizens as public school advocates in the greater Philadelphia region. Throughout all of our initiatives, we conduct and use research to fuel our work and that of others.
