Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Education, 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 $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

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.

CSF is an excellent program that I can say honestly lives up to what they are here to help with (financial support). There are NO false advertising or giving parents the run around in becoming a part of their program. I am happy to have these scholarship funds for both of my daughters. The renewal progress is easy and straight forward which makes things hassel- free. I enjoy being with this program and give nothing but good reveiws.

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.
