Public funding is no longer enough to provide our schools all of the resources they require. The Development Workshop has committed to raising $25,000 for five public school projects across Philadelphia. We’re encouraging every Development Workshop member to learn more about each school’s needs and make a donation through the Development Workshop Campaign. Your generosity will ensure a positive and bright future for the children of The School District of Philadelphia.
The five projects included in the Development Workshop’s $25,000 fundraising campaign were recommended by The Fund for The School District of Philadelphia. Please join us in assisting schools in under-resourced neighborhoods in Philadelphia.
