Philadelphia Eagles Support ELC with $25K Grant

ELC has received a $25,000 grant from the Philadelphia Eagles Social Justice Fund, through which the Eagles organization provides a one-to-one match to donations by players and staff. Education is one of the Fund’s priorities, and we are thrilled to be able to partner with the Eagles in the important work of ensuring access to a quality public education for all children in Pennsylvania. We’re especially gratified to know that the grant resulted from a decision by the players and staff themselves, demonstrating a deep commitment to our shared goals. Deborah Gordon Klehr, our executive director, notes that we are thankful for the team’s support at a time when financial resources have been strained as a result of the pandemic: “Support from the Eagles will allow us to do our work in a year when so much is uncertain about other sources of funding,” she said. “To be able to know that we can continue to invest in our staff and continue to invest in our work is incredible.”
