About Upper Perkiomen Education Foundation

The Upper Perkiomen Education Foundation is an independent 501(c)3 not for profit organization that serves as a fiscal intermediary between the private sector and the Upper Perkiomen School District. We are the only philanthropic organization that works directly with school leadership to align the investments of partners—private foundations, corporations and businesses, community organizations and individual donors—with the strategies that will impact the success of students attending our neighborhood public schools.

We identify, coordinate and connect philanthropic resources—through effective public-private partnerships—to leverage investments in the Upper Perkiomen School District. We target strategic priorities that have a measurable impact on the success of our students.
