WHAT IS TEAM CSF?

Team CSF is a community of individuals actively fundraising in support of the Children’s Scholarship Fund (CSF). Whether developing an independent campaign or joining an event organized by CSF, team members are united in the shared goal of building awareness about CSF while raising funds so that more low-income children can benefit from a CSF scholarship.

WHY FUNDRAISE FOR CSF?

I know I personally wouldn’t be where I am today without the education that I received and to give other perople the same opportunity it what drives me.

  • In 2019-20, CSF helped almost 26,000 children throughout the country, including more than 7,200 in New York. Even so, the demand from families far outpaces funding and many are turned away each year.
  • CSF has earned accolades as a top nonprofit from Charity Navigator, Independent Charities of America (ICA), and GreatNonprofits. In fact, ICA’s “Best in America” Seal of Excellence is awarded to fewer than 5 percent of U.S. charities.
  • 100 percent of every donation goes directly to CSF scholarships and the children and families CSF serves.
  • The average CSF scholarship amount is approximately $2,000 in New York. So $2,000 not only funds a full year in school for a low-income child but also forever changes his or her life by opening doors to new opportunities and a better future.
