Giving parents a choice. Giving children a chance.

The mission of the BASIC Fund is to broaden the educational opportunities for low-income families around the Bay Area by helping them afford the cost of tuition at the private school of their choice. Scholarships are available to students entering K-8th grade to attend private schools in all nine Bay Area Counties.

The BASIC Fund organization strongly advises families to apply by March 15 to have the best chance for funding. Applications will be accepted up until July 31, but applications received after the March 15 deadline will be placed on a wait-list.
