Message from the President & CEO, Prerna Singh...

With a new year comes time for new reflections, and new changes. When I look back upon these past few years, I am filled with a profound sense of accomplishment and gratitude for the change that The Pledging Tree Foundation (TPTF) has strived to bring in local communities in Chester County and greater Philadelphia region. Our accomplishments have brought financial security to ten families in our local communities, and impacted countless others to maintain financial well-being in their lives. Our mission to promote financial stability still rings true as it did four years ago, when I started this organization. My sense of gratitude spreads to everyone who has aided us in allowing our vision to come to fruition and flourish. From our dedicated team of volunteers and board members, to community partners like the Financial Stability Partnership of Chester County and the Financial Planning Association of the Philadelphia Tri-State area, as well as our donors and supporters, I thank each and every one for their belief in our mission.

 

But our work doesn’t stop here; in fact, we still have a long way to go in order to provide financially challenged families the right support so that they can get back on their feet again.And as we believe so strongly here at TPTF, change comes from within.Everyone has the potential and opportunity to bring about change in his or her community. Can you be part of this endeavor and be a part of this change? Absolutely.

 

As the new year dawns upon us, I encourage you to take a step toward thinking about what changes you would like to see in your community. If you believe in our mission, please join me in this endeavor and together we can make a definite change in our local communities.

 

With Warmest Wishes for a Happy, and Safe New Year,

 

Prerna Singh
President, CEO, and Founder
