EQUITABLE ACCESS TO EDUCATION
High school readiness for many low-income students, largely is a result of poor preparation in middle school. PFF is funding programs/projects that support middle school engagement and focus on achievement filling a funding gap. PFF is one of the few funders focusing on this important stage of education for under-advantaged children.
The children we educate are courageous, capable, witty, and optimistic, with the ability to achieve as much as any other child, given the opportunity. Providing this opportunity is our goal.
Advancing equity and excellence in education for students living in under resourced communities to meet evidence-based indicators of HS Readiness by the completion of Grade 8.
