I worked as an intern at NOSF a few summers ago and it was a rewarding experience. I witnessed first had how the passion, love and dedication of the staff and board directly changed the lives of children and families in the northwest Ohio area. NOSF works to give families a choice not only about their kid's school, but gives them a choice about their children's future. NOSF is truly changing the community one child at a time. Thank you for the wonderful experience.

So much more than just a scholarship for our daughter, Maribel! We are so grateful to have the privilege of sending our daughter to a private school & could not make that possible without Northwest Ohio Scholarship Fund. NWOSF also keeps in touch throughout the year through newsletters & emails. It lets us know that they are striving for excellence for the children, it feels great to have such a wonderful organization by our side!

We are a single income family who wants the best education possible for the children, just like other parents. We are in our 3rd year of being a scholarship family. The first 2 years our child attended a private school with the scholarship and this year we are homeschooling two of our children using the scholarship fund, what a blessing in our family's lives this great organization has been! Some day we hope to be in a position to give back to them, some of what they have given for us!

I could not be more appreciative than I am right now for the amazing individuals at NOSF. This is the first year that I was able to qualify for the scholarship for my daughter. NOSF afforded her the opportunity to continue her education at a school that she and I have grown to love while offering me some financial relief. The staff was so professional yet personable. They were very knowledgeable and helpful. They made me feel like no one else mattered but me. It's easy to treat people that way when they are coming to give you money, but I was coming to ask for money and they still treated me the same. There gift was truly a blessing to my family. Thank you NOSF. Please continue the good work.

Our family has been blessed by NOSF, this organization has supported us with the tools to provide our children with a Catholic education, an education that was out of reach for us financially. We will forever be grateful for the opportunity and look forward to a time we can give back to NOSF.

I have been a volunteer and Board member since NOSF's inception in 1998. I have witnessed firsthand the tremendous impact that parental choice in education can have on the life of a student. Parents of all financial means deserve a chance at that kind of choice. NOSF provides it better than any organization I have seen. A quality education does more to empower a person than almost any other experience. What better way to bring hope for the future than to provide a student with that gift. NOSF is a living example of Margaret Mead's axiom; "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has."

I have been involved with this organization since its inception. Thousands of families have been helped. As an educator, I know how important parental involvement is. This program partners with the parent and keeps the parent in the loop. Students in this program succeed.

This organization has made such a difference in the enrollment at our school. Most of the children who receive these scholarships would not be able to attend our school if it weren't for NWOSF. They have been a lifeline to countless individuals who want to pursue a private Catholic Education. Thank you NWOSF for your support and committment to education.

As the principal of a Catholic school, I am so grateful for the good work done by NWOSF. This wonderful organization helps parents who would like to have more options for their child's education, but may not have the financial means. I am so thankful for all the donors who make these scholarships possible and for the amazing work done by the scholarship office!

My children are recipients of the NWOSF scholarships and we couldn't be more grateful for them! The scholarships allow us to provide our children a private education at some excellent schools. NWOSF keeps in close contact with the recipients through email, newsletters and social media. It's an excellent charity and we're proud to be a part of it!

Without the assistance provided through the generous donors to the NOSF, I would not have been able to send my son to his present school. It is a joy to see how successful my child is doing, he really needed the extra's this private school offers. The scholarship is a gift, I thank God for it.
