In 2007, the law firm of May Oberfell Lorber wanted to help make a difference in the educational opportunities available to students at Walt Disney Elementary School ─ its neighbor to the east.
Through a generous corporate donation, a summer reading program was established.
Soon other businesses wanted to be a part of supporting public education, through the P-H-M Education Foundation, and Corporations for Education (CFE) was developed. CFE is the corporate division of PHMEF and provides grants to
P-H-M teachers and staff throughout the academic school year.
There are three levels of financial participation in CFE. Corporate Partners pledge $25,000 payable over five years at $5,000 per year. Corporate Team Leaders pledge $15,000 payable over five years at $3,000 per year. And, Corporation Team Members pledge $5,000 payable over five years at $1,000 per year.
