About the Charles E. Ellis Trust for Girls

The Charles E. Ellis Trust for Girls (The Ellis Trust) helps eligible young women in Philadelphia excel in high school and be prepared for postsecondary success.

For girls attending public and charter high schools, we fund a range of exciting and meaningful experiences and opportunities to help girls strengthen their academic skills, develop their character, perfect their talents and discover who they are and who they hope to be. We also award grants to help cover basic school-related needs, such as uniforms and supplies.

For girls attending independent high schools and parochial high schools, we award grants to help cover the cost of tuition.
