Reasons to Donate
When you give to CSF, 100% of your gift will go directly to a scholarship for a low-income child. No part of your gift will be used for administrative or fundraising costs.
All donations to CSF are highly leveraged. Not only are your gifts matched by CSF, but the recipient families themselves also match your gift by paying their portion of the tuition.
You can be proud to support a charity with the highest possible rating (four stars) from Charity Navigator for six years in a row. Only 3% of the non-profits surveyed are awarded this honor six years running. Charity Navigator bases its ratings on financial efficiency and responsibility. You can view Charity Navigator's complete report on CSF here.
CSF has recently been awarded a GuideStar Exchange Seal for transparency. GuideStar.org shares IRS tax returns and other information from charities and CSF is one of the most popular education charities among visitors to GuideStar's website.
CSF has also received Independent Charities of America's (ICA) Seal of Excellence. The seal is awarded to charities participating in the Combined Federal Campaign that "meet the highest standards of public accountability, program effectiveness, and cost effectiveness." Less than 2,000 out of more than a million U.S. charities have been awarded the ICA seal.
CSF donors can choose to fund scholarships in a particular CSF program city or area. Or they can simply allow their gift to go wherever it's needed most.
Every donation to CSF is fully tax-deductible.
