Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Education, Elementary & Secondary Schools, Literacy, 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 $789 million, changing the lives of more than 174,000 low-income children.

Target demographics: Low-income families with children in grades K-8.

Direct beneficiaries per year: In 2017-18, CSF and CSF partner programs served more than 25,700 children who used scholarships to attend the private schools their families chose for them.

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, 174,000 children have benefited from our scholarships across the United States as part of our mission to expand choice in education. Currently more than 26,500 children are using CSF scholarships (2018-19 school year). These children are attending the school of their families' 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.

It is a struggle to provide our children with their most basic needs, but the children's scholarship fund made it so easy to apply for a scholarship, which gave me more time to focus on supporting my family, so that I can be less dependent on Charity.

Thank you!

My cousin recommended this school, because the school that she was attending in 3rd grade was not living up to our expectations. She has only been their two months, and she already seems more focused. I have a lot better communication with her teachers, they send me emails and text messages, I can call the school or just in and talk to the teachers. The class sized is small, so the teachers know her a lot better.

All over the world we have organizations making profits without really helping our community going forward.
My son Aghton-John Laraque Noel is now in 1st Grade at Batallion Christian Academy.
You know how tough it is raising children especially when you are living pay check by check.
When one of the teachers told me about Children's Scholarship Fund, that was a big relief for us. Even if so far we don't get a full scholarship, that organization has been helping us a lot.
I am sure they are thousands and thousands, the people who can say the same thing as me.
Me and my family especially our son Agthon-John would like Children's Scholarship Fun to get more help so that they can continue to help more people. They deserve that.
He was the student of the month for September.
Excelsior to the Organization and all the people working for them!

Besides teaching a Kids how to live a life that pleases God by the way they serve him, Education is the best thing that Parents can offer to their children before they close their eyes. However, things are getting tougher and tougher for parents because of economic issues.
While some people are wasting the wealths that they have, others are using them to help others in so many way. Recently, I have discovered a CSF Scholarship Program that help parents like me to alleviate their burdens.
Nowadays, things are not easy for me and my wife altough we are both working. While my 3 now 4 years-old boy was in Pre-K, one of the teachers inform us about Children Scholarship Fund. We applied, and this year while he is in Kindergarten we were able to get a half scholarship.
This non-profit organization officially launched in 1998, by offering 40,000 K-8 scholarships – worth almost $200 million – to low-income families across America. The parents of more than 1.25 million students applied for the four-year scholarships. They are still doing that great job. Both Starters, which are Ted and John unfortunately passed away. But other people with good heart like them keep doing the job.
One thing I want you to know is that: it is also tough for them. Being a non-profit organization, they won't be able to keep doing it, if they don't get more supports for volunteers, donors and interested scholarship seekers. Please, on behalf of them, I am asking you to join them in that tremendous effort to buil a better society while we are giving a good education to our children. On behalf of our kid we one more time say thank you.
Ladies and Gentlemen, we already thank you for your support toward the organization.
May the Lord richly bless you in return!

The Children Scholarship Fund is a great organization, that helps students get into schools they wouldn't of been able to get accepted in to because of the families lack of funds. The nice people that work for the CSF are always quick to reply to emails, or answer questions.
The program is here to help families.

Children’s Scholarship Fund Is A Wonderful Nonprofit Organization

First of all, I would like to thank CSF for the support for the few years in the program. If it wasn't for the scholarship assistance offered I would probably wouldn't be able to afford my child school on my own. The learning experience my daughter has depends on the school, her and me by trying to make the right decisions and finding ways to help. Applying for CSF scholarship is one of the way. Thank you once again for allowing my participation in the program, I am greatly appreciated.
