Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Education, Primary & Elementary Schools, Scholarships, Scholarships & Student Financial Aid, Student Services

Mission: The Children's Scholarship Fund aims to maximize educational opportunity for all children: for those in need by offering tuition assistance in grades K-8 for alternatives to faltering conventional schools, and for all children by supporting and cultivating education reform and parental choice efforts.

Results: Since our inception in 1998, CSF has provided scholarships worth $568 million, changing the lives of more than 139,000 low-income children.

Target demographics: low-income children in grades K-8.

Direct beneficiaries per year: For the 2013-14 school year, 27,650 low-income K-8 children used CSF scholarships to attend private schools.

Geographic areas served: 25 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.

I am very grateful for the Children's Scholarship Fund, if it wasn't for this program my daughter would have never been in catholic school. Between mortgage, bills and house hold bills their was no way I could ever afford to pay for catholic school. It is a great help for parents who want their children to get the best education ever. I am very very grateful and cant thank enough the Children's Scholarship Fund for giving me the help to help my daughter get the best education ever. The catholic schools are smaller and the children get better attention they can focus better and interact better with each other. The teachers are better prepared its just a whole different atmosphere. Catholic schools are so much better than public. the kids learn more have more self respect for them selves and others. Each kid is unique and deserves a chance at better education. Children's Scholarship Fund on my end get 10 star rating,

thank you, thank you for making my life easier in providing the best education to my daughter.

If not for Children's Scholarship Fund, I would not be able to send my daughters to a Catholic school. As a single mom and living in the South Bronx it is tough to make ends meet. Thankfully my girls are getting a quality education and ate in a safe and wholesome environment.
