Delaware State Chapter, P.E.O.
Welcome to the website of Delaware State Chapter, P.E.O.
P.E.O. is a philanthropic organization where women celebrate the advancement of women; educate women through scholarships, grants, awards, loans, and stewardship of Cottey College; and motivate women to achieve their highest aspirations.
Friendship is the cornerstone of P.E.O. – it is the legacy left by our Founders
and it thrives in our unique Sisterhood. P.E.O. exists to be a source of encouragement and support for women to realize their potential in whatever worthwhile endeavor they choose.
The P.E.O. Sisterhood is passionate about its mission: promoting educational opportunities for women. Our sisterhood proudly makes a difference in
women's lives with six philanthropies that include ownership of a women's college, Cottey College, and five programs that provide higher educational assistance:
P.E.O. Educational Loan Fund (established 1907)
P.E.O. International Peace Scholarship Fund (established 1949)

Earlier today I sent out an alert email to LC Presidents and VP's regarding a scam email that is being sent from the following email address: email@example.com. The email looks like it is coming from me as DE State Chapter President. It is not from me. It is a scam.
The scam email is requesting a copy of your chapter's membership list with the members' respective emails and phone numbers. The tone of the email has a very urgent sound to it and requests that you take action right away. It says not to call me since "my cell is broken". IGNORE THIS EMAIL...IT IS A SCAM. Please do not reply or send any information.
Please let all your chapter members know that if they receive any email requesting chaper member information, or request money, or request gift cards, etc...do not reply. Do not send anything.
I have let International know of this latest scam.
If you have any questions or have concerns, do not hesitate to contact me or your State Board Buddy Chapter.
