Philadelphia foundation to award $15,000 in scholarships at inaugural gala

Delaware County attorney Deon Browning is dedicated to serving and committed to education and scholarship. Earlier this year, the Media, Pennsylvania-based lawyer established The Browning Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to raising money for community entities that serve youth.

Through tutoring, mentoring, seminars, literacy outreach programs and entertaining, yet educational, hands-on team building exercises, Browning’s foundation also provides scholarships.

“Our foundation was established to help people in Philadelphia and surrounding areas,” said Browning. “We’re addressing education first. A lot of us are able to talk about what the ills are and what the problems are, but there’s not a lot of action behind it, so this was our do something,” said the West Philadelphia native and Overbrook High School alum.
