Our Mission

Founded in 1995, the BISON Children’s Scholarship Fund is a privately funded organization whose mission is to broaden the educational opportunities for Western. New York children by helping low-income families afford the cost of private K-12 schools.

The BISON Children’s Scholarship Fund partners with The Children’s Scholarship Fund

In the spring of 1999, the BISON Children’s Scholarship Fund commenced a partnership with the Children’s Scholarship Fund (CSF) and became part of CSF’s 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 where they live.

Through BISON’s partnership with CSF, donations received can be matched. For every $4 donated, CSF matches another $1, bringing the total to $5 to help WNY children, highly leveraging your investment. Since 1999, CSF has invested nearly $5 million into the WNY community allowing us to serve significantly more children.
