Philanthropic Educational Organization
P.E.O. is a philanthropic organization for women. Founded in 1869 as a small friendship society. P.E.O. quickly grew into a diverse widespread sisterhood with one mission: promote education and personal growth opportunities for women.
P.E.O. is a source of friendship and support for close to a quarter of a million chapter members throughout the United States and Canada. Ask one of the lovely ladies at the Daz-E about becoming a member of P.E.O.
Our sisterhood proudly offers educational opportunities through six philanthropies: ownership of a women’s college in Nevada, Missouri (Cottey College) and five additional programs that provide educational assistance.
