The Fund for the School District of Philadelphia Unveils Innovative Tool to Make it Easier to Support Public Schools

Philly FUNDamentals, a new web-based platform, allows donors to give directly to a school and project of their choice

The Fund for the School District of Philadelphia (the Fund) is proud to launch Philly FUNDamentals, an innovative web-based giving platform that seeks to strengthen all Philadelphia public schools. The School District of Philadelphia is one of the first in the nation to use such an approach to help individual schools raise money to meet their specific needs.

“Each school community is unique, with its own set of needs and challenges,” said Dr. William R. Hite, Superintendent of The School District of Philadelphia. “Philly FUNDamentals will allow us to help tackle the inequity we see in education today by ensuring students have the targeted resources they need to succeed, no matter where they live or what their background may be. We are excited about giving the alumni of Philadelphia schools and all others the opportunity to contribute to our schools as an important part of our overall effort to improve educational experiences all across the District.”
