Driven parents empowering great kids. Seen many success stories first hand of young adults who took advantage of their scholarship and their parent's commitment to education.
Transforms children and families with a modest investment, by helping families send their children to schools best for them. The families are invested as much as any donor.
Hands-down one of the most important and worthwhile charities with which I have ever had the opportunity to be associated. The Children's Scholarship Fund ("CSF") exists to help our nation's most precious asset - our children - and the most deserving amongst them - inner city children in "broken" schools - by placing them in charter schools they would never be able to afford to break the cycle of poverty and lead "normal" lives. The work of this charity is truly life-changing; for most of these children, CSF represents the one chance they'll get to escape the multigeneration cycle of poverty afflicting their families and neighborhoods. If you ever get the opportunity to attend a CSF event and meet the wonderful children this charity exists to serve, you will come away changed.
CSF is unique in that it pushes for real education reform while helping
actual children today. As a parent, I can't imagine having no choice but
to send my child to a failing inner-city school and I applaud CSF for
its efforts to give all parents, regardless of income, a choice on where
and how their children should be educated. Yes, reformers are trying to
improve our education system, but what about the children who are
currently trapped in terrible schools? By supporting CSF, I know that
I'm helping to move the needle on education reform while helping those
kids right now.
In a time when there are so many underprivlaged children accross the U.S. CSF is there to help change the cycle and make a difference. I'm proud to be associated with them and I think their cause is awesome.
It's amazing how many children and their families Children's Scholarship Fund helps. More than 25,000 scholarships are given out every year! While lots of groups are trying to figure out how to "fix" our educational system, CSF is directly helping kids to get a great education. Keep up the good work, CSF!
