Our Mission

Peter's Wish, Inc. awards scholarships to youth who demonstrate a strong service commitment to their communities.  Since 2006, Peter's Wish has awarded $27,000 to 18 high school seniors seeking higher education at a accredited university, college, or trade school.  Because our scholarship requires 30 hours of community service, Peter's Wish awardees have performed over 600 service hours for their local communities.   

latest news

Peter's Wish is proud to announce that the following students have been conditionally selected for the Peter's Wish Scholarship:

- Sarah "Laney" B. from Ocean Lakes High School in Virginia Beach, Virginia

- Alyssa V. from Bayside High School in Virginia Beach, Virginia

- Kylie S. from Kellam High School in Virginia Beach, Virginia

The $1,500 scholarship will be sent to their university/college once the students are accepted and complete 30 hours of community service according to the plan they laid out in their applications.

Congratulations to these amazing young people!



Our Inspiration

Peter's Wish was inspired by Peter Darryl Colucci.  Peter courageously fought a tough battle with Non-Hodgkins Disease Lymphoma for a year and a half before dying at just 10 years old.  Before he died, he told his father, "I am not afraid of dying, I just WISH I could grow to be a man like you."  Our goal is to help youth grow up to live fulfilled and meaningful lives - just like the one Peter wished for.  We believe the values of selfless service and education can lead to greatness in one's life.
