Our mission is to encourage Minnesota's youth of color to pursue post-secondary education.
In 1988, Alan and Diane Page launched a foundation that has grown to support and inspire young people of color throughout Minnesota for more than 30 years. Today, the Page Education Foundation’s programs help to financially support college students’ academic goals while fostering positive mentor relationships and encouraging role models for children.
The Page Education Foundation is a nonprofit, tax-exempt organization founded by Pro Football Hall of Fame inductee and former Justice of the Minnesota Supreme Court, Alan Page. Our mission is to encourage Minnesota students of color to pursue post-secondary education. For 30 years, we have provided financial support, in the form of Page Grants to students of color. In return for their awards, our recipients, known as Page Scholars, help develop positive attitudes about education among elementary and middle-school children by volunteering as tutors and mentors in their communities.Since 1988, we have provided more than 7,000 Page Grants totaling $14 million in financial support. These Page Scholars have volunteered over 435,000 hours serving 40,500 younger children in our communities.

Celebrating 30 Years of Creating Heroes through Education and Service
Join us in celebrating 30 years of providing encouragement and financial support to Minnesota students of color by making a "Legacy"commitment. Legacy gifts allow the Page Education Foundation to continue our work, expand scholarships, and secure the future of the Page Education Foundation. Our Page Scholars will "pay it forward" by mentoring and tutoring children who could become future Page Scholars.
