About the BISON Fund

The BISON Children's Scholarship Fund is a privately funded tuition assistance program for low-income children living in the eight counties of Western New York: Erie, Niagara, Genesee, Allegany, Cattaraugus, Chautauqua, Wyoming and Orleans. Families awarded a BISON scholarship are able to send their child to a private elementary school of choice.

The BISON Fund also provides a limited number of homeschool awards. If you currently homeschool or are interested in homeschooling your children and you meet all the requirements in New York State, we will pay 25-75% of the cost of correspondence course tuition and /or teaching supplies, up to $500 per child.

Thanks to the generosity of the Western New York community and matching grants from the Children Scholarship Fund (CSF), the BISON Children’s Scholarship Fund has grown from helping 200 children in its first year to nearly 1,750 children today. These BISON children attend 78 different private or Catholic schools in the Western New York area.

While BISON's dramatic growth in scholarship support is remarkable, the demand for BISON scholarships is even more overwhelming as awareness of the program has heightened.

This demand is our challenge, and we appreciate your generosity to help more children have a better chance for a brighter future!
