Pittsburgh, PA—The Print and Graphics Scholarship Foundation (PGSF) is pleased to announce a partnership with The Peer Group for ongoing funding of scholarships and the eventual establishment of an endowment. This pledge is being made by the group in order to demonstrate their commitment to the industry and in recognition of the 60th anniversary year of PGSF. The eleven companies in The Peer Group represent major markets across the country with over $400,000,000 in revenues, providing print, direct mail, large-scale graphics, and creative marketing services.

At its recent meeting held in Madison, Wisconsin, The Peer Group jointly decided that each member company would contribute an annual $1000 donation to PGSF. Based on the number of companies in the group, within just a few years it will reach the minimum endowment level of $25,000.
