Help a child become a CSF Scholar. Because a few generous donors pay for all administrative and fundraising costs, 100 percent of every dollar you donate goes directly to funding scholarships* and providing educational opportunities for children in need. You can make a one-time contribution or schedule routine contributions (i.e. monthly, quarterly, etc.) through our website – and we are deeply appreciative of each and every gift.

Looking for a new and different way to honor someone? CSF is thrilled to accept gifts made in tribute to a friend or family member on special occasions such as birthdays, anniversaries, and holidays.
Also, consider a contribution to CSF in honor of a teacher, mentor, or family member who helped pave the way to your success, just as CSF scholarships do for children today. An acknowledgement will be provided to share with the person you are honoring.
Making a contribution to CSF in memory of someone is a beautiful way to honor that person and celebrate his or her life. CSF is honored to be included in such tributes as are the children and families we serve. Acknowledgement of your choosing will be provided to share with the loved ones of the person you are remembering.
Contribute to our future through planned giving. There are many ways to provide for future donations to CSF, including your will. We can work with your attorney or tax advisor to find the giving solution that best meets your needs.
Gifts of securities either held by your bank or brokerage or held by you offer significant tax advantages and are easy to make. Please contact us for information about gifts of securities or mutual funds.
