Tri-County Scholarship Fund (TCSF) has changed the lives of thousands of children since its inception in 1981. To date, more than $20 million has been spent to fund over 27,000 scholarships. TCSF provides scholarships to economically disadvantaged students from kindergarten through 12th grade to attend private and parochial schools in Morris, Sussex and Passaic counties. Awards are made on the basis of need without regard to race or religion.

With the help of many, TCSF students receive a springboard out of poverty and achieve remarkable success. Through TCSF, families in the lowest income levels are able to choose safe, excellent educational opportunities for their children in schools that offer a sense of community and a disciplined learning environment. By investing in the education of financially disadvantaged children, Tri-County has discovered the antidote to multi-generational, cyclical poverty. In fact, 99% of those touched by Tri-County graduate from high school (neighboring schools report a 59% graduation rate).

We need your help! 77% of the families are single parent households. The average income of families receiving Tri-County assistance is $21,600 for a family of four. We are looking for additional board members and we have begun a Friends of Tri-County auxiliary to give others the opportunity to serve as mentors to high school students and reading assistants to elementary school children. From fund-raising to cultural events to leadership development, there are many ways to serve.
