St. Stephen’s Episcopal School Emerging Scholars Fund

The Emerging Scholars Fund provides tuition assistance for students to attend St. Stephen’s Episcopal School, a seven-year college prep school in Austin, Texas. The program specifically supports students who come from low-income families and will be first-generation college students.

The fund was founded on the principle that education is a great equalizer in American society, and that talented students from anywhere on the financial spectrum should have the same education opportunities. Removing financial barriers not only benefits the individual students but also helps to keep the American Dream of socioeconomic mobility alive.

The GRAMMY Museum explores and celebrates the enduring legacies of all forms of music; the creative process; the art and technology of the recording process; and the history of the GRAMMY® Awards, the premier recognition of recorded music accomplishment.

Saving the Planet with Song is a new initiative funded by The Sangreal Foundation. The first phase, developed in partnership with The GRAMMY Museum and The Recording Academy, utilizes the core concepts of music to teach children, at the elementary, middle and high school levels, throughout the United States about the importance of conservation and the critical role that biodiversity plays in all of our lives.

Penn -Young Quakers Community Athletics – The University of Pennsylvania

Penn students support academic tutoring, mentoring and development of sports skills for elementary and middle school students who are participating in the Young Quakers Community Athletics program. This program operates during after-school hours, typically Mon-Fri 3-6pm and on occasional weekends. Athletes from Penn men's and women's lacrosse teams, and from men's and women's track and field, work with the elementary/middle school students one or two days a week. Penn students with experience in these sports help support non-field practice sessions as well as additional athletic skill-building activities other days of the week. Many Penn students have teaching/mentoring experience which helps support off-field academic enrichment activities. This effort is highly consistent with both the mission of the University of Pennsylvania and of its visionary, Benjamin Franklin.
