The BISON Children's Scholarship Fund

Founded in 1995, the BISON Children's Scholarship Fund is a privately funded organization whose mission is to broaden the educational opportunities for Western New York children by helping low-income families afford the cost of private K-12 schools. Since 1995, BISON has awarded over 31,300 K-8 scholarships with a private investment of $28.8 million. BISON is a program that works right now, instead of needing to wait for reform and policy changes. BISON is a prime way for thousands of children to have immediate access to a safe, quality, and values-based education. This school year, there are over 1,900 BISON Scholars in 85 different schools across Western New York.
