Empower A Child's Passion

The Plant a Seed Inspire a Dream Foundation provides annual scholarships for children ages 10 to 18, to pursue passions and interests outside of school. We connect young people from low-income households to life-altering athletic, artistic, musical and creative activities led by positive role models. Based in Yardley, PA, the Plant a Seed Inspire a Dream Foundation serves the greater Philadelphia region and South Jersey. It is our hope to make a significant difference in the lives of children by encouraging their dreams.

Get Involved!

If you have children of your own, you know how important it is that they have the opportunity to pursue their passions and interests. These activities connect them with positive adult role models, other children who share their interests and improve their feelings of self-worth. Unfortunately, many families do not have the financial resources to support their children’s interests. This is where PAS steps in. We are determined to provide every child who has a passion with the ability to pursue their chosen activity while connecting with positive adult role models and like-minded children.

Our programs thrive on your generosity and goodwill. Our kids have a passion for personal growth and creating new experiences in their lives, and we try to carry that same passion to adults. Let us show you how you can help in enabling a child’s passion. Get involved and donate to inspire a dream for a child...

See what our scholarship recipients and their loved ones are saying about PAS!

I love being able to go to karate. It helps me with my anger and has become my favorite thing to do. I live and breathe karate now.

Plant a Seed is one of the best choices I have ever made to be able to help my son.

PAS helped me pursue my passion because I get to follow my dream. This means to me that I can do anything I set my mind to!

Briana has always wanted to play guitar, I was able to save up to buy her one from Toys R US for her birthday 2 years ago, but could never afford lessons. PAS has given her the chance to finally learn to play.

It is a dream for me to able to sing as a way to communicate what I am feeling.

You have no idea how much PAS has changed the lives of my girls, I had tears in my eyes watching Katie on the horse for the first time. Just knowing she was doing this for herself meant so much to me.
