The Children’s Scholarship Fund is a non-profit organization started in 1998 that offers scholarships to underprivileged children in the Philadelphia area. With over 205 participating private and parochial schools, the Fund serves children in kindergarten through eighth grade. The Legacy Foundation’s grant to CSF provided a full four-year scholarship for a deserving child. The scholarship money goes directly to the school the family has selected, but families are responsible for paying a small portion of tuition costs as well — reflecting CSF’s requirement for parental involvement. All administrative costs are covered by the CSF Board of Directors, and the CSF National matches all donations 50 cents to the dollar for new scholarship dollars raised. As funding permits, their goal is to give out an additional 500 scholarships each year. Over the last 5 years a total of 3750 scholarships were awarded.
