The Page Education Foundation is a 501c3 non-profit organization founded in 1988 by NFL Hall of Fame Inductee, Retired Justice of the Minnesota Supreme Court, and Presidential Medal of Freedom Recipient, Alan Page and his wife Diane Sims Page.

For over 30 years, our mission is to create heroes through education and service by encouraging Minnesota students of color to pursue post-secondary education. In exchange for financial support, recipients, known as Page Scholars, contribute to our community by mentoring younger children in kindergarten through eighth grade.

The Page Education Foundation gave 10 Page grants in their first year, growing to more than 500 annually. To date, $15 million in Page Grants have been awarded to 7,500 students who have studied at over 100 post-secondary schools across the state. Page Scholars have also given nearly 500,000 service hours to positively influence 50,000 younger students' futures in 325 community organizations and schools across the state.
