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.

Reviews for Children's Scholarship Fund

Rating: 5 stars  

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.

I have two boys attending Catholic School, as a single mother I know this would have been possible without the
Children's Scholarship Fund! I also look forward to the year round emails that promote healthy activities and eating that we can do together as a family. My sons love their school and are learning so much in a safe, caring environment. I am so grateful and as are my boys.

My daughter has been in able to attend catholic school because of the Aid provided through the Children's Scholarship Fund. Since our family has the extra help in paying for school we have are able to afford extra curricula activities that is offered by the school such as Playing an instrument with the school band, which my daughter loves, furthermore music is known to stimulate the brain. Thank you CSF for helping my child get the very best education.

This is truly a great program that helps people who cant afford to send there child to catholic school. My daughter also 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.

After my son graduated 5th grade, we decided to put him into a catholic school. The middle schools is our area weren't too great. I was pleased to learn that there was a scholarship fund to help out. It is a big help to us!

I'm very grateful for children's scholarship fund. Education is big for me and my family. Without the children's scholarship fund. I wouldn't be able to afford to put my daughter through catholic school. It's very important to me. I am a single mother of 3 and would not be able to afford the tuition. I'm very thankful and grateful. They also send tips to help improve your experience with them, advice and other services to help make your children the best possible person they can be. That means a lot. They show they care and stay connected.
