Children's Scholarship Fund Overview
Target demographics: low-income children in grades K-8.
Direct beneficiaries per year: For the 2012-13 school year, 25,700 low-income K-8 children used CSF scholarships to attend private schools.
Geographic areas served: 27 cities and states
Programs: We provide partial tuition assistance for low-income families to send their children to private schools in grades K-8. We focus on the earlier grades to ensure a solid educational foundation. Since our inception, 139,000 children have benefited from our scholarships across the United States as part of our mission to expand choice in education. Currently more than 27,650 children are using CSF scholarships. These children are attending the school of their parents' choice through the generosity of our donors, the efforts of our partner programs across the country and the sacrifices made by the families themselves, who pay-on average-50% of their children's tuition.
