To get a good, well-paying job in today's world, higher education is a prerequisite. The Paramount Education Partnership, or PEP, is a non-profit foundation that provides scholarships to local students who attend a four-year university, community college, or trade school. Now there's an easy way for everybody to join in this worthy enterprise.
You can become a member of the PEP family of donors through at GoFundMe.com/PepScholarships. Make sure you look for the "Certified Charity" checkmark to contribute to the correct account. Any amount donated is helpful and appreciated. Plus, it's tax deductible. If you give $50 or more, you can receive a PEP tote bag as a gift.
PEP has given almost $900,000 to nearly 300 Paramount students since 2004. This year, 46 scholarships will go to Paramount college-bound seniors and returning college students. In some cases, the money is what makes it possible for these kids to further their education.
By taking part, you will promote education in Paramount and put a smile on your face knowing you've made a difference in Paramount student's life. Call (562) 220-2121 for more information.
