PMFS is one of the founding members of The Friends Education Equity Collaborative.
The Collaborative was organized by staff and volunteers of ten small Quaker elementary schools in the greater Philadelphia region, with the purpose of fostering the growth of Quaker Education by providing funding that makes a Quaker education accessible for more families.
In 2016, the Friends Collaborative formed a Special Purpose Entity (LLC) to take advantage of the changes in the Pennsylvania Education Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) and the Opportunity Scholarship Tax Credit (OSTC) programs. In just the first year, the Collaborative received a total of $2,067,666 in gifts and pledges. The Collaborative is supporting more than 100 students from 15 Quaker schools.
