EDDY Awards

  "Celebrating the power and potential of Philadelphia public education"  

Thank you for joining us at our 2014 EDDY Awards!

Presented by 

Now in its 10th year, the EDDYs continue to be an important education event and annual fundraiser, which recognizes outstanding commitment to public education by individuals, organizations and businesses.

Each year, generous individuals and institutions provide the support needed to help improve public education for all of Philadelphia’s youth. This year was no exception; the 2014 EDDYs raised the most funds ever through this program—over $185,000!

You can still support our work and join other generous donors who, like you, care about public education.
