Established in 2009 under past PPRA president and philanthropist Dr. Bill Cowen, PPRA’s Philly PRoactive program helps extend the good work of worthy organizations. Each year, a new nonprofit benefits from the support of PPRA’s members who lend their time and talents as public relations professionals.
This year PPRA is partnering with College Possible. College Possible makes college admission and success possible for low-income students through an intensive curriculum of coaching and support. Since its founding in 2000, College Possible has become a leading organization in the field of college access and success with a track record of best-in-class results, rigorous evaluation and innovation.
