How to Help CSFB Fund the Future – Our Next 20 Years

  Children’s Scholarship Fund Baltimore’s Fund the Future Campaign was launched in 2016, with the intention of raising $1 million in three years. The campaign was designed to help to better forecast the number of available scholarships and take new families off of our waiting list sooner. This way, families will have more time to select the school of their choice and secure the remaining funding needed for tuition. To date, CSFB has raised over $920,000 for the campaign and earlier this month, CSFB held a Fund the Future event, where we received a $20,000 donation for matching gifts made […]

Committing to Studies (and Missing the Game)

The other night, I stayed up way too late watching my beloved Baltimore Ravens lose a very well-played football game to the Pittsburgh Steelers. Driving into the office, I remembered a few years ago when I would come in and our program administrator of 15 years, Joanne Sanders, and I would take AT LEAST the first 15 minutes of our day reviewing plays, celebrating victories or lamenting losses. But no more. My personal football guru (who knew more about stats and players and plays than my husband, who coached little league for five-plus years) was nowhere to be found. Joanne [...]
