Children's Tuition Fund of Virginia

You now have the opportunity to invest in the lives of children through education!  You can take part in Virginia’s Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) by directing your contributions to the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) Children’s Tuition Fund (CTF) of Virginia designating your contribution for Fredericksburg Christian School.

Many families can’t afford to send their children to Christian schools–even those whose children attend failing schools.  Now corporations, businesses, and individuals in Virginia can make a difference for those families by contributing to the ACSI CTF.

This fund provides scholarships for children of qualifying families to attend ACSI member schools.  Families who have students whose annual household income does not exceed the 300 percent of the current federal poverty guidelines are eligible.

Where do the scholarship dollars come from?

The ACSI CTF scholarship fund consists of tax credit contributions from Virginia based corporations or businesses and individuals.

How You Can Donate
