Donors are investors in the lives of the children we serve, so measuring the impact of our program is very important.
Recently, we performed a survey of 1,000 CSF alumni - specifically, parents of students who received at least $4,000 in CSF funding between the years 1999 to 2009, and received scholarships for at least four years during that time. We hoped this criteria would show a greater correlation between a CSF scholarship and the results on the student’s later life. The impact of your gifts are shown below from our survey respondents:
Percent of Students Graduating from High School: 99.5%
Percent of Students Participating in Post-Secondary Education: 84%
