Our Impact

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 28 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 6,500 Page Grants totaling $12 million in financial support. These 4,500 Page Scholars have volunteered over 420,000 hours serving our communities. For the 2015-2016 academic year, we have selected 536 Page Scholars who will be awarded $900,000 in grants.

  • 536 Page Scholars
  • 61% returning Scholars
  • 20,623 volunteer hours
  • 13,138 children served by Page Scholars
  • 255 community partners and organization impacted

Alan’s Fund

To celebrate Alan’s work and commemorate his recent retirement, the Page Education Foundation has established Alan’s Fund for Future Scholars. Continue Alan’s work to make Minnesota’s future better for our youth by giving a special contribution to the Page Education Foundation.

Donations to Alan’s Fund will be used to 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.
