The Granny Fund provides tuition assistance to families facing financial difficulties, allowing them to maintain continuity for their children throughout these challenging times. Play & Learns’ Granny Fund was established in 1988 in memory of Anna Schatz, a grandmother who provided a constant source of love and support for everyone. To date, over $1 million has been given to nearly 5000 children. It is our goal to continue providing families with assistance needed to give their children quality education. The following testimonials are from current Play & Learn families who have benefited from the Granny Fund. (more…)
