PRA Group Elevates Education with ACCESS College Foundation
NORFOLK, VA – In partnership with ACCESS College Foundation, PRA Group, Inc. (Nasdaq: PRAA), a global leader in acquiring and collecting nonperforming loans, will help ACCESS deliver 14 scholarships to local high school seniors during ACCESS 2022 College Commitment Day.
Since 2016, the nonprofit’s annual College Commitment Day has recognized the achievements of local students and celebrated their commitments to higher education.
ACCESS College Foundation provides students with the tools necessary to be successful in their educational endeavors—especially those who may not otherwise have access to essential resources. Its programs help ensure students can make informed decisions about postsecondary education and provide them with academic, financial and personal support while in college.
As a continuation of their long-time support for ACCESS, PRA Group recently donated $20,000 to ACCESS, with part of that donation supporting its Fund-A-Service Campaign, which matches donations to ACCESS and doubles their impact on local students. In honor of PRA Group’s commitment, the company’s Executive Vice President, Global Investments and Analytics Officer Chris Graves took the stage to present one of the $5,000 scholarships awarded during the event.
“Children are the future, and as an entrepreneurial company focused on doing things the right way for the long term, it is our responsibility to make a positive impact on their futures by advancing education, financial understanding and professional development,” said Graves. “These are bright youths any school or company would be lucky to welcome aboard. ACCESS College Foundation’s programming makes meaningful use of every moment it has with them, and we are honored to extend our support.”
Since 2009, PRA Group has contributed nearly $9.5 million to charitable causes dedicated to strengthening the vitality of communities around the world.
