Philanthropic Educational Organization (PEO) Chapter

The PEO is a philanthropic organization where women celebrate the advancement of women; educate women through scholorships, grants, awards, loans and stewardship of Cottey College; and motivate women to achieve their highest aspirations."

There are two local Philanthropic Educational Organization (PEO) chapters.  These two chapters are the Chapter IW, which meets during the evening and the Chapter IP which meets during the day.

Monies received from these fundraisers go towards bettering the education of women, including scholarships for local High School girls.  For more information about the Chapter IW, please contact Nora Linnertz, President at 970.285.5604.
