Location: 8 W 38th St 9th Fl New York NY 10018 USA

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.

This is truly a great program that helps people who cant afford to send there child to catholic school. My daughter loves her school, teachers and classmates. she is learning so much and she looks forward to going to school every day, even when she is sick she want to go. She just loves to learn new things and to be challenged. I would not be able to send her to this school with out your help. Thank you so much. God bless you all.

Great organization. The scholarship it give to my family is greatly needed and appreciated. Without the scholarship my son would not be able to attend that school which in turns decrease the value of his education.

The work that the children's scholarship fund does is incredible. I think it is one of the best and most efficiently run nonprofit organization that is around. I am a mother of two and the help that i get from the organization has enabled my children to attend a very good school of their choice. The concern that they show to us the parents and the welfare of our children is also unbelievable. I owe this organization a debt of gratitude and i hope one day me and my children will bless others the way this organization has blessed us. There is no greater gift that anybody can give to a child than a good education and that is what this organization is doing for my family. Words cannot explain the depth of gratitude that i feel towards this organization.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

None whatsoever! they go over and beyond what is required of them.
