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.


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


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.
