QUALITY = DIGNITY

EDUCATION = SUCCESS

OUR MISSION

 

The Sydney Paige Foundation provides underserved students

with high quality backpacks and school supplies made possible by

forward-thinking businesses, community organizations, and individuals.

 

We seek to give underserved youth the tools and confidence needed to

thrive in school, as well as to spark a life-long love of learning.

 

Our philosophy, and that of our partners, is that education is the best pathway toward long-term economic security, and that all students, regardless of economic circumstance,

must have equal access to quality tools and supplies.

LOVE WHAT WE'RE DOING AND WANT TO GET INVOLVED? THANK YOU!

STATISTICS DRIVING OUR PASSION TO HELP

 

1 IN 5 CHILDREN IN THE US LIVE IN POVERTY (OVER 15 MILLION!)

POVERTY = A FAMILY OF 4 WITH A HOUSEHOLD INCOME OF $25K OR LESS

RESEARCH SHOWS THAT FAMILIES NEED AN INCOME OF >$50K TO COVER BASIC EXPENSES

DROP OUT RATES ARE 6 TIMES HIGHER FOR LOW INCOME CHILDREN

THE TOP 2 REASONS FOR STUDENTS DROPPING OUT OF SCHOOL ARE:

(1) LACK OF CONFIDENCE

(2) LACK OF TOOLS TO DO THEIR WORK

We make a difference in the lives of low income children by giving them the tools and confidence needed to learn & thrive in school, stay in school, and graduate.

WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT

 

QUALITY

OVER

QUANTITY

We do not donate cheap backpacks

that will quickly fall apart, or waxy

"restaurant crayons" with only four colors.

WE WANT OUR WORK TO HAVE A DEEP AND MEANINGFUL IMPACT. WE DON'T BELIEVE IN SIMPLY "CHECKING THE BOX" ON GIVING.

PARTNER

From running online drives to facilitating pack-out and give events across the country, your needs are our priorities.

WE WANT TO BUILD STRONG, LONG-TERM RELATIONSHIPS WITH OUR PARTNERS FOR SUSTAINABLE GIVING AND A WIN-WIN IMPACT.

DESIGNER

BACKPACKS

We don't make a backpack until our #1 critics (our kids!) say it's AWESOME and something they can't wait to get their hands on!

FROM TODDLER TO YOUNG ADULT, WE DESIGN OUR BAGS TO INSTILL AS MUCH JOY AND CONFIDENCE AS HUMANLY POSSIBLE IN THE KIDS WE ARE SO FORTUNATE TO BE ABLE TO HELP.

OUR NAME

 

Sydney and Paige are the daughters of our founder, Courtney Brockmeyer.

 

Courtney ultimately left her corporate career to start this Foundation. The driving reasons for this change were to:

 

  • make a difference in lives of children in need 

 

  • spend more time with her girls

 

  • teach her girls about the importance of education & giving back

  • be an example that women can be successful CEOs

  • show her girls how challenging the status quo, with constant creativity and passion for what they believe in, can lead to such fantastic positive change in the world
