PAGE EDUCATION FOUNDATION
In 1988, to mark his induction into the National Football League Hall of Fame, Alan Page and his wife Diane founded the Page Education Foundation (PEF). In the last 29 years, the foundation has awarded scholarships to more than 6,500 students of color pursuing their post-secondary education in Minnesota. In exchange for financial support, recipients, known as Page Scholars, contribute to our community by mentoring young children in grades kindergarten through eighth. Through this interaction, Page Scholars develop leadership skills and the children they work with see these role models as examples of inspiration and hope. To date, Page Scholars have volunteered over 420,000 hours. For the 2016-17 academic year we have 518 Page Scholars who will be awarded $850,000 in Page Grants.
CLE: ELIMINATION OF BIAS
To mark his retirement from the Minnesota Supreme Court in 2015, Page has launched an initiative, to build awareness of ethics and the elimination of bias in the law, matters that will shape our legal community now and in the future.
The 2017 program will focus on Gender Bias.
Please join us in supporting the Justice Alan Page Elimination of Bias Continuing Legal Education (CLE) Seminar on Thursday, April 6th, 2017. Proceeds from this event directly benefit Page Scholars in the form of Page Grants. Your sponsorship is also an investment in our community.
When you sponsor this event, not only do you provide financial support to help a Page Scholar overcome the financial barriers associated with higher education, you also provide a positive role model to a child in our community, reduce the student-to-adult ratio in our classrooms and public schools, and develop tomorrow’s leaders.”
