Sandra Reding can recount many rewarding moments in her career as a fundraiser, but her current job helping parents find the right educational option for their children is one of the most rewarding.
As Executive Director of the Children’s Scholarship Fund of Omaha, Reding, in essence, is helping parents access the right school for their kids—families who otherwise might not have that option.
“Every family has a story,” Reding says. “Every parent wants to make the best choice for their kids, and if the best for them is sending them to a private school, that’s why we’re here. One type of education doesn’t fit every child. If you are a low-income family and the right education is a private or parochial school, and you are a qualifying family, we are there to help.”
Several students were honored and more than $200,000 was raised at the Children’s Scholarship Fund of Omaha’s (CSF) CHANCE Luncheon Nov. 5 in Omaha.
