Support CFS Poway
CFS Poway is a non-profit organization with 501c3 designation from the IRS. Our mission is to support those who wish to privately homeschool their children. Homeschooling is a financial sacrifice for many families because instead of working outside the home, one parent stays at home with the children all day. This is a wonderful benefit to the family!!
As funds are available, we endeavor to make scholarships available to privately homeschooling families in our group who are hurting financially. We have been able to waive membership fees for those whose primary breadwinner is unemployed. We have also given fieldtrip vouchers to help defray the cost of extracurricular learning activities. If you would like to contribute toward our “Scholarship Fund” there are several ways to do so.
1) Box Tops for Education
Download the Box Tops App to scan recipts for earnings to be credited to CFS Poway's earnings online (you will find us listed as Chrisitan Family School, Poway, CA). While the physical Box Tops are being phased out, you can still cut out “Box Tops for Education” from many manufacturers and bring to any co-op or park day and put in the designated collection jar.
