Page Education Foundation
About Us

In 1988, Diane and Alan Page created the Page Education Foundation (501c3) to encourage Minnesota students of color to pursue post-secondary education. Recognizing a need for our education system to reach more young people of color, the Pages used Alan’s induction into the NFL Hall of Fame to launch the organization. From its inception, the Page Education Foundation has offered financial assistance to students of color facing barriers to attaining their educational dreams. In turn, these young leaders return to their communities to serve as tutors and role models for elementary and junior high school students.

In its first year, the Foundation awarded Page Grants for post-secondary education to 10 Page Scholars.  Thirty-three years later, almost $16 million in Page Grants has been awarded to more than 7,700 Page Scholars.  Our Page Scholars have given nearly 500,000 hours of volunteer service to communities across Minnesota, impacting the lives of over 50,000 children.

Alan, with a public and successful career as a professional football player and then as a Minnesota Supreme Court Justice, was and is the face of the Page Education Foundation, but Diane was its heart and soul. She made the important personal connections with donors, staff and volunteers and, most of all, with Page Scholars past and present. She and Alan were always completely in sync about the goals and activities of the foundation (he once said, “We were so close that sometimes it was hard to know where I stopped and she began.”) but it was her warmth, commitment and attention to detail that made those goals come to life. If she wasn’t on the phone with a potential donor, she was organizing a group of volunteers to read applications or helping a Page Scholar connect with a possible job opportunity.

Diane died of cancer on September 29, 2018. As was typical of her personality and her commitment to the mission of the Foundation, she worked tirelessly on Foundation efforts until the day of her death.  Today, guided and inspired by Diane’s vision and commitment to creating opportunities—and hope—for Minnesota students of color, Alan and the Page Education Foundation continue her work.

In 2020, the Page Education Foundation’s board members agreed to rename the organization “The Page Education Foundation founded by Diane and Alan Page,” doing business as the, Page Education Foundation, in order to more directly recognize Diane’s crucial role in starting and growing the foundation.
