My daughter has been in this program for many years. The children's scholarship fund is a well rounded program which have made a difference in our lives. They not only gave us financial support, but they provided us with a wealth of information. Information on upcoming tests, which included the core and the tachs exams, and how to prepare for them. In addition, they provided vital info. about steps my daughter can take to prepare for High school . Children's scholarship fund is an awesome organization that goes above and beyond for our youths. May God continues to bless them.
Children's Scholarship Fund enables my daughter to receive an excellent education at a Catholic School, an opportunity I didn't have growing up. The subsidy they provide makes a better life for my daughter possible.

My family and I are extremely greatful to the Children's Scholarship Fund, for providing a grant which made it possible for our son to continue attending Catholic school, from where he was able to graduate kindergarten. We couldn't have done it without the help during a time of great need. The application process is very straightforward, and the staff is very responsive. Thanks again so much Children's Scholarship Fund, we are forever greatful.
As I write this, I get chocked up. children's scholarship fund has helped me provide my son with an amazing education. As a low income family only in my wildest dreams would I be able to provide my son with the great education that he is recieving at Visitation School! The class sizes are small and each child can get individualized attention where they need it most. Because of children's scholarship fund my child's future looks dazzling!☀️ I will forever be thankful for all they do!
