The BASIC Fund, a privately funded program, is geared towards increasing the scope of educational opportunities for children of low-income households. This allows children of K-8th grades to avail education at private schools. Presently the program funds 3,600 children in 275 schools in numerous counties.
The BASIC Fund provides scholarships on a first-come, first-served basis to families in financial need. The awards are based on household size and income and cover up to $2,500 of the tuition per child each school year.
