After Black Friday and Cyber Monday is Giving Tuesday — and we’re gearing up to support the Excellence in Education Foundation for PGCPS! The Foundation is a non-profit charitable organization that awards hundreds of thousands in scholarship dollars to deserving students each year.

Last year, more than 70 students received over $300,000 scholarships for leadership, community service, career and technical education and more. The Foundation expects to award $125,000 in scholarships next spring, nearing $1 million in scholarships awarded since 2012!


Giving Tuesday (Nov. 27) is a great time to support the Foundation. Every coin counts!
