Grantee Spotlight: Page Education Foundation

The 2021 George Family Foundation Annual Report will be available soon. We’ll announce its launch on our website — so stay tuned! In the meantime, here’s a sneak peek from the report. This spotlight is one of a handful of short features celebrating the extraordinary work the Foundation’s grantees are accomplishing.

The Page Education Foundation provides financial assistance to Minnesota students of color pursuing their dreams of post-secondary education. Their scholarship recipients also volunteer with young children in the community as tutors, mentors, and role models.

The scholarships help students reach their fullest potential both academically and as community leaders and also address the systemic racial inequities in Minnesota that adversely impact all residents’ economic, social, and mental-health growth and prosperity.

“The George Family values authentic relationships with its grantees and does not shy away from asking how they can better serve their community partners. That openness to feedback from the people who work directly in communities is unique and deserves recognition.”
— Amanda Moua, Executive Director, Page Education Foundation
