Our K-8 Program
In addition to good health and great love, the best gift we can provide our children is a quality education. For low-income families, access to quality education is made possible by the BISON Fund. For 26 years, members of our community, have allowed BISON to provide over 35,000 scholarships to low-income children allowing them to attend schools of their choice via tuition assistance.
Prior to BISON, families had few choices regarding their children’s education. Even though many parents desired a better education for their children (i.e. smaller class sizes, a safer learning environment, and greater involvement in their children’s education), private school tuition was not economically feasible for these struggling families. By offering partial scholarship assistance, BISON is empowering parents, often for the first time, with the ability to choose the school which best meets their child’s needs.
BISON is successful because we partner with families who are committed to providing educational opportunity for their children. Our parents struggle to make ends meet but are willing to sacrifice to pay a portion of their child’s tuition, knowing that a quality education can open the door to more opportunities and a better tomorrow.
