Our Impact

Below is some of the impact we've made our first year and we're just getting started! All of those who graciously donated ensured students received back-to-school supplies and gave scholarships to graduating high school seniors entering their first year of college who showed a commitment to social justice.  



School supplies Raised

Thanks to all of the attendees of Panago's viewing and memorial we collectively raised over 1,000 school supplies for Jason Lee Middle School students! This included brand new backpacks, notepads, pens, pencils, notebooks, paper, binders, art supplies and more!



SIX-THOUsAND dollars in scholarship funds

Our generous community members and loved ones raised upwards of $6,000 for the 2018-2019 school year for our graduating high school senior(s) from local Tacoma schools. The young people chosen demonstrated exemplary grit in the face of adversity and  showed a commitment to social justice.


Our Programs

We have two programs at The Panago Foundation. Our school supply program provides supplies such as backpacks, binders, notebooks, and art supplies to schools where students are often in need of the tools to help them successfully complete their work both in school and homework assignments after school. Our scholarship program provides funds needed to support students through their first year of post-secondary education.
