Why invest with CSFP?

With 20 years of experience, CSFP provides scholarships to under-resourced children to attend tuition-based, K-8th grade schools. Our unique program is proven, consistent, and serves children and families most in need. And unlike other programs, our scholarships are equitably awarded through a lottery.

“The EITC & OSTC programs are the most simple, cost-effective way to make an impact in the educational future of an under-resourced child’s life.” -Mike Jackson, Grant Thornton LLP

We support under-resourced children and families

Up to 3 children in a family may receive a scholarship. CSFP assists families in finding schools that provide a good fit for their children. Families can transfer their scholarship to another private school at any time.

We focus on diversity

CSFP has no religious or political affiliation, a factor that sets us apart from other scholarship organizations. Our 170 diverse educational partners include independent, special needs, and faith-based schools.
