1 - Bison Fund - bisonfund.com (Please note, there are deadlines for application)
What is the Bison Fund
Founded in 1995, the BISON Children’s Scholarship Fund is a privately funded tuition assistance program for low-income elementary school children. BISON’s mission is to provide low-income parents a full range of choices for their children’s education. Families awarded a BISON grant are able to enroll their child in a private school of their choice in any of the 8 counties of Western New York.
How the Bison Fund works
Bison Fund scholarships are awarded first-come first-served on the basis of financial need. It is BISON’s goal to assist families through the full nine years of grammar school (including grandfathering in younger siblings).
Every family is required to pay a portion (at least $500) of the tuition each year. The parental contribution is a vital element in the success of the program, as families who must invest their own money for tuition have a stronger stake in their child’s education.
2 - CTK Tuition Angel Fund
This Fund allows students, whose families are unable to afford the full tuition, the opportunity to attend CTK. This aid is available to families with students in grades Kindergarten through 8th grade. To apply, fill out the FACTS Grant & Aid Application by logging in to your account at factsmgt.com.
3 - CTK First Responders Fund
Christ the King is proud to support our first responders, including active law enforcement, EMT's, firefighters and active/retired military and will provide a $250 tuition discount (per family, per year) for parents or legal guardians who serve. Please contact Kelly Caterina, Business Manager, directly to receive this discount at [email protected] or 716.839.1430, ext. 203.
