PHILADELPHIA- AmerisourceBergen announced a donation of $30,000 to Children’s Scholarship Fund Philadelphia (CSFP) to support 15 new scholarships for low-income students in Philadelphia. The gift will allow CSFP to award K-8th grade scholarships for children to attend tuition-based schools in the area.
The global healthcare solutions company has been a CSFP donor and partner for nearly 20 years and has given nearly $400,000 to the organization. These scholarships offer hope, opportunity, and a greater chance at success to students by providing financial access to safe, quality schools in the Greater Philadelphia area. CSFP, with its network of more than 170 private and parochial schools, is the most broad-based and diverse K-8th grade scholarship program in the state.
“AmerisourceBergen has been an outstanding partner to CSFP since the organization’s outset,” said Nicole Tell, Senior Vice President of Development and Chief Operating Officer at Children’s Scholarship Fund Philadelphia. “Our work would not be possible without the support of companies like them that understand and value the importance of a quality education. This gift will help students in Philadelphia have a brighter future.”
The AmerisourceBergen check presentation took place at Gesu School, an independent Catholic school located in North Philadelphia and one of CSFP’s partners. The school has been a partner for nearly two decades and has 82 students receiving scholarships from CSFP this year.
“AmerisourceBergen is steadfast in our commitment to making a positive, long-lasting impact by enriching the lives of our global communities. We believe that the best way to achieve success and create sustainable change is through long-term, strategic partnerships. To that end, we’re proud to continue our ongoing support of organizations like the Children’s Scholarship Fund Philadelphia, and are thrilled to help fund scholarships for students attending Gesu School and the like, which are helping support the next generation of Philadelphians and preparing them for success,” said Gina Clark, EVP and Chief Communications and Administration Officer at AmerisourceBergen.
