Mission

The Children’s Scholarship Fund (CSF) provides children of low-income families with tuition assistance in grades K-8 and supports expanding educational opportunities for all children.

A quality elementary school education puts children on the path to success in life. To that end, CSF and its partner programs provide partial scholarships to low-income families so their children can attend the K-8 schools that will help them reach their full potential.

About

The Children’s Scholarship Fund-Oregon empowers K-8 students from lower-income Oregon families to get a quality education and a “hand up” in life by providing partial tuition scholarships to the tuition-based schools of their parents’ choice.

A program of Cascade Policy Institute, CSF-Oregon is part of the Children’s Scholarship Fund (CSF) national network of scholarship granting organizations. CSF and its partner programs are committed to empowering families in need with the ability to choose the K-8 schools that best meet their children’s needs, regardless of their ability to pay or the neighborhoods where they live. CSF also supports parental choice and reform efforts that help all children get the education they deserve.
