How they are participating

With the simple mission of providing children from low-income Philadelphia families with financial access to quality, safe, K-8th grade, tuition-based schools, CSFP increases the long-term economic and social success for thousands of Philadelphia children. CSFP grants need-based scholarships to children from low-income Philadelphia families, all of which are awarded by random lottery. Our scholarships are in high demand: just this past year, CSFP turned away more than 7,000 applicants, whose parents were desperate for better educational opportunities for their children.

Now in our second year of #GivingTuesday participation, Young Friends of Children’s Scholarship Fund Philadelphia (YFCSFP), will host their first fundraiser on November 29th and make a donation to CSFP on #GivingTuesday. This holiday sets the perfect stage for YFCSFP to make its presentation by highlighting its efforts and giving our next generation of leaders a moment to shine. If you are a young professional between 21 and 40 looking for a way to give back to our city, please visit and attend our fundraiser, the Box Social!

There are plenty of other ways to help CSFP provide more scholarship support for children in need. You can transform the life of a child forever by giving this Tuesday to CSFP. Please visit for ways to give. And remember, 100% of funds donated to CSFP go directly to mission, so all #GivingTuesday donations to CSFP will directly provide scholarship support for Philadelphia children.
