The High Water Women Foundation (HWW) is a leading philanthropic organization focused on financial literacy and initiatives for low-income children. Each year, the HWW Backpack Drive helps some of the neediest children in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut start the school year with the supplies they need to be ready to learn.
Pershing Square has supported the HWW Backpack Drive for over eleven years, funding approximately 11,000 backpacks. This year, our goal is to raise $10,000 to fund 500 backpacks. As we’ve done in the past, PSCM will be making a 1:1 match on every dollar donated – doubling the impact of your donation! Each $20 donation funds one backpack filled with grade-appropriate supplies.
