May 09, 2013
Numerous nonprofit groups focus their efforts on making sure children have opportunities available to them that allow them to succeed in the future. The Pew Charitable Trusts has been very generous to many different organizations for years, and has recently turned its attention toward helping the youths of Philadelphia.
Administrators announced that over the next three years, it will be giving a total of $8.46 million to 46 different nonprofits in the area that have dedicated themselves to making the lives of children and their families better.
"We are pleased to support so many impressive organizations that will provide services to positively affect the lives of more than 20,000 children and their families annually," Pew Fund for Health and Human Services director Frazierita Klasen noted.
Many of the groups receiving the funds have honed in on providing educational opportunities, teaching social skills, preventing domestic violence and intervening in early onset medical cases that present themselves.
The seven Pew Charitable Trusts were established and united between 1948 and 1978 by the four children of Joseph and Mary Pew. The main focuses of the organization remain global research and public policy initiatives as well as providing generosity to nonprofits in various regions.
