I have worked at NOSF for 7 months now as the Communications and Development Director. NOSF is a wonderful organization that truly makes a difference in families lives. The ability for a family to be able to choose the education that fiits their family is truly a blessing for them. Working with Ann Riddle the Executive Director is such a positive experience. The wonderful work she is doing to make a difference for these families is remarkable. Northwest Ohio is so fortunate to have NOSF serving 19 counties and 67 schools in the program this year. The success of such a program would not be possible without Ann and the supportive Board Members she has making a difference in growing minds and creating futures.

I applied for this scholarship for my daughter in the spring, and it was a blessing that we were accepted. I was struggling with how I was going to be able to afford for her to continue at the school.. but she loved it so much the previous year.. this is a wonderful program !!

The Northwest Ohio Scholarship Find Inc made it extremely easy to apply and the scholarship we received helped us to continue to be able to participate in the Mansfield Christian Independent Studies Program. I also like the newsletters they send out which makes me feel like we are part of their extended family.

As a LIAL elementary alum, I knew what a private education could mean foundationally for students. Even though our public schools were rated well, we knew there was more to elementary and middle school educational success than strictly academic assessments and ratings. NOSF was instrumental in first opening the door to an alternative educational experience for our children, when we didn't think we had such incredible options. Ann has been a pleasure to work with all along, and NOSF has been amazing. My kids have flourished as students at Toledo Christian School, where spiritual formation and a classic curriculum are offered, and our family benefits in ways that cannot be measured. We emphasize our appreciation and heartfelt thanks for all who are involved in making this same scenario possible for so many families at TCS and other private and parochial schools.

What NOSF provides is life altering. Being able to be assisted just to get to the top of the mountain is such a relief. They are with you all the way until you reach the peak. NOSF is truly a miracle. Our family has benefited greatly from NOSF and the childrens lives have been enhanced because NOSF paved the way for them to continue their education at a private Islamic school. We owe a debt of gratitude to NOSF.
