The PPA must Pay Up for Philly Kids

$3,260 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 19 people in 13 months
When you feed the meter or pay a parking ticket, do you wonder where your money goes?

It goes into the coffers of the Philadelphia Parking Authority (PPA), a public agency. When the State of Pennsylvania took over the PPA in 2001, the School District of Philadelphia was promised stable, consistent, sizable funding from on-street parking revenues. 

That never happened.  It is time to Pay Up PPA!

The Pay Up PPA Coalition demands $25 million in dedicated annual funding for Philly’s kids, instead of the inconsistent and inadequate funding of the past. The PPA can and must channel more revenue to the school district.  Every dollar saved in PPA operations is an additional dollar for our schools.

The PPA is known for its high salaries, a payroll bloated with jobs for friends of the well-connected, and other questionable practices.  We can no longer afford this while Philly’s kids don’t even have safe school buildings.

Together we can build a successful campaign for Philly’s kids! 

The Pay Up PPA Coalition is building its strength.  Volunteers do most of the work. But to raise our visibility, we have to get out our message out. Your donation will support these efforts.

Please join us with a contribution to make PPA pay up!
