PSP pools philanthropic capital from a wide variety of investors (donors) and invests it to create educational opportunities and improve outcomes for low-income students. We achieve these goals by investing in great schools of all types (public district, public charter and private), developing skilled urban educators and empowering families.
PSP is increasing the number of high-performing schools in Philadelphia and creating the conditions for great schools to thrive. After thorough and rigorous due diligence, we invest in the creation, growth and improvement of quality schools that primarily serve low-income students.
Every great school starts with talented leaders and teachers who hold the belief that all children can learn. PSP invests in programs that prepare and develop teachers and leaders for the rigors of working in urban schools.
PSP is leveling the playing field for Philadelphia families by providing the information they need to discover the best schools for their children. We accomplish this through the free, multimedia resources of GreatPhillySchools, which was established by PSP in 2012.
