About The Philly Fund

501 C3

“The Philly Fund” is a registered 501 C3 charity with all proceeds supporting low income families with children who have ADD or ADHD. We thank you all for your kind and generous support of The Philly Fund and the memory of Philip Frisella.

Charity Overview

The Philly Fund began in 2003 in memory of Philip A Frisella and strives to enhance the lives of children and families that are affected by Attention Deficit Disorder, Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder and other learning disabilities through financial support.  Philly Fund Scholarships are granted to students and children who are diagnosed with ADD, ADHD or other learning disability.

Scholarship Recipients

“M”

M, 12, is a spunky, smart girl who had a lot of difficulty with reading and math in her early years at school. She began to dread school and her self esteem was way down.  In third grade, she was diagnosed with ADHD and several other learning impairments. Her parents needed extra funds to help M get specialized treatment, especially after her younger brother was diagnosed with a learning disability as well.

“K”

K is in 5th grade at Howard Park School and has been diagnosed with ADHD & autism.  K has 4 brothers & sisters and all have been diagnosed with special needs.  K’s family needed extra help with school tuition, and Howard Park contacted the Philly Fund.

“B” & “A”

PS Kids is an agency offering professional pediatric therapy services for developmentally and socially delayed children.  The Philly Fund granted a scholarship that is applied to different children whose therapies would be lost due to the parents inability to pay out of pocket for the services.  So far, we’ve been able to help B & A continue their speech and behavior therapy after their insurance for these services ran out.
