Even in the best of circumstances, growing up can present real challenges. For inner-city school children these challenges are multiplied many times over and are often overwhelming. Inner-City Scholarship Fund (ICSF) helps remove the fundamental challenge of getting a good education in a safe, secure environment in New York City. Nearly 70% of the students enrolled in the 93 designated elementary and secondary inner-city schools in Manhattan, the Bronx and Staten Island come from homes living at or below the federal poverty line - the average scholarship recipient's family income is approximately $24,000 per year. Over 50% of ICSF students come from single-parent households. Despite these impediments, our Catholic schools – in partnership with our donors – enable our students and their families to overcome enormous odds and break the cycle of poverty through education.
