A Run for Education
This November, we are challenging people from all walks of life to give back with virtual run for a very special cause...ensuring that children from low-income families can have access to a high-quality education.
Helping Children Reach their Full Potential...
The Scholarship Fund For Inner-City Children (SFIC) gives low-income children the opportunity to attend high-quality private and parochial schools throughout Bergen, Essex, Hudson, and Union counties in New Jersey. Through partial-tuition scholarships, SFIC allows families from all walks of life to have access to a high-quality education rooted in community-values. SFIC recipients have higher attendance rates, test scores, and college acceptance rates than their peers in public schools.
Since inception, SFIC has provided over 57,000 students with over $47,000,000 in partial tuition assistance. You can help us to continue to bring this gift of education to more and more people!
Now more than ever, with the economic downturn due to the COVID-19 pandemic impacting parents and schools., the need for SFIC's work is greater than ever. As November and Thanksgiving approaches, we are looking for people ready to give back by supporting these families!
