For Drexel University and the City of Philadelphia, it’s the idea that promise grows.
In 2013, Fairmount Ventures helped both to pen the country’s top application, securing West Philadelphia’s distinction as a Promise Zone. In 2016, we built on that success, and once again elicited a top score to earn a U.S. Department of Education $30 million Promise Neighborhood grant for West Philadelphia.
The real promise? Delivering sustainable educational supports and community-based services to meet the complex needs of children and families in neighborhoods of great need.
