Campaign For 10,000 Children:
Bringing scholarships to 10,000 new children in five years.
In 2011, CSFP had a vision: to issue 10,000 new, four-year scholarships by 2016. This would significantly scale our scholarship program. But, with the tremendous demand from low-income Philadelphia families for quality educational opportunities, and the availability of over 10,000 empty school seats in quality area private schools, the need to scale our scholarships was clear.
Thanks to our Campaign Donors, we have reached our campaign goal. In June 2016, CSFP awarded 2,000 new four-year scholarships, marking the 10,000th scholarship in five years. Special thanks to our early leadership partners, The Maguire Foundation, The Lenfest Foundation, Dorrance Hamilton and the Hamilton Family Foundation, PNC, Chubb, and Wawa.
TODAY, with strong demand from families desperate for safe, quality schools for their children, CSFP is committed to maintaining this heightened level of scholarship support. With an average scholarship of $1,950/year, YOU can build the educational foundation every child deserves and make a direct and lasting impact on the life of a low-income child.
