Let the Children Play: The Greg and Lori Phillips Foundation
Provides eligible students in grades 6-9 with funds necessary to participate in extracurricular activities.

The Let the Children Play Foundation was created by Greg and Lori Phillips. Together they spent 70 years teaching middle school students in Worthington, Ohio. The focus of their middle school philosophy was to expose children to an educational experience which included academic, social, and extra-curricular skills. This would provide them with a foundation to become successful as they continued on to high school, college, and the professional world. 


This foundation gives children the opportunity to experience success in a variety of activities. It was always rewarding for Greg and Lori to see children, who were having difficulty in the classroom, have pride in their accomplishments outside of the academic world. In our pay to play world, access to many of these activities require fees that all families cannot afford.


All gifts to the Let the Children Play Foundation will be matched by an equivalent amount given by Greg and Lori Phillips.
