With a simple, but powerful mission of providing four-year, K-8th grade scholarships to low-income families in Philadelphia through a need-based lottery and a small but passionate staff, CSFP currently serves about 5,000 children enrolled at over 185 private, and parochial schools. The demand for access to safe, high quality primary schools is tremendous. Each year CSFP must turn away more than 7,000 children desperate for better educational opportunities.

CSFP is the largest and most diverse provider of K-8th grade scholarships in Pennsylvania. CSFP's program is unique and a highly-leveraged investment in the future of our community. And when you hear from some of our great scholarship winners, you will see why they succeed.


See CSFP supporters call some of the 2,000 new scholarship winners and their families to let them know they have won the 2015 scholarship lottery.
