Philanthropic Educational Organization

Women helping women reach for the stars

ORCA Community - PEO

P.E.O.s are women of all ages, from all walks of life, united in friendship and a shared passion for educating women. We believe that educating women can change the world. Our chapter has most recently provided local central Vancouver Island area women with financial aid to pursue studies in nursing, emergency medical technician training, and Red Seal chef training, among many others, and are currently helping a student pursue a PhD in dentistry. We do this by providing  scholarships, grants, awards and loans that best meet the needs of the candidates.

P.E.O. is one of the official charities supported by the Oceanside Mother’s Day Race.
