Children’s Scholarship Fund Philadelphia (CSFP) is a privately funded nonprofit organization with a mission to provide students from under-resourced Philadelphia families with financial access to quality, safe, K-8th grade tuition-based schools, thereby increasing the long-term economic and social success of their children. CSFP grants need-based partial scholarships via a random lottery. With a nearly $13.5 million operating budget last year, CSFP raised and was awarded $11 million in scholarship dollars from private donors (individuals, foundations, and companies). CSFP currently serves more than 6,200 children enrolled at over 150 private and parochial schools.  

Since 2001, Children’s Scholarship Fund Philadelphia has been changing lives by providing parents the opportunity to select a safe, quality school for their kids. CSFP offers scholarships to Philadelphia families in financial need so that their children can attend tuition-based schools that meet their educational needs.  

Now, CSFP is launching a bold plan for growth. CSFP aims to serve more students longer by removing the organization’s four-year restriction on scholarships and retaining more of its scholars through 8th grade, while still providing 2,000 new scholarships annually. The CSFP Breaking Barriers Campaign, with its historic fundraising goal of $100 million, will be essential to this plan
