The 2018 “State of Philadelphia” report published by the PEW Charitable Trusts, states that out of the 1.5 million people living in Philadelphia, 25.7% live below the poverty line. As the 6th largest city in America, we are ranked as #1 with the highest poverty rate. That is not a statistic we are proud of but one we are drastically trying to change. Our mission at Sky Community Partners is to provide programs and resources to underserved families and individuals by collaborating with high-performing organizations to increase educational opportunities, increase health awareness and access, and improve outcomes for at-risk communities.
Research teaches us that 30% of children raised in poverty do not finish high school, and that individuals who do not earn a high school diploma by age 20 are 7 times more likely to be persistently poor between ages 25 and 30. As the only African American founded and led, non-religious affiliated, non-profit organization in Philadelphia that provides tuition-based scholarship in grades k through 12, Sky Community Partners has made it a primary goal to provide resources that will help break this cycle.
Your donation towards our k-12 education programs will help us with directly supporting families and students with financial resources and information. The average annual household income of our families does not exceed $30K. We are committed to supporting those most in need.
Make a gift today and your tax-deductible donation will support our mission to fight poverty in our Philadelphia communities.
