Ethel Mae Hocker Foundation


The Ethel Mae Hocker Foundation*, founded in 2005 and privately funded by Richard and Marcia Hocker, provides educational opportunities to less fortunate, deserving elementary and high school students.

The Foundation currently partners with 12 outstanding educational institutions (currently 10 in the greater Philadelphia region, one in California, one in South Carolina) to identify students who demonstrate leadership abilities, academic success, and commitment to the community who are also in need of financial and personal support.

Since its inception the Foundation is proud to have assisted over 400 students and awarded approximately $4.5 million in scholarship money.

*The Foundation is a registered 501c3 entity.
