Pre-School Scholarship for Single-Parent Families

We are currently budgeting and fundraising for this program.

Early Education Scholarships (partial tuition assistance) is available for children of struggling single-parent families.  These scholarships are funded by and administered by Broken Promises Foundation as part of its commitment to the single-parent community.

The Scholarship is intended to assist families whose children would benefit from early education pre-school instruction but who do not have sufficient financial resources. Qualified single-parent families cannot be receiving government assistance TANF (Welfare) or Food Snaps (SNAP) and have annual incomes of $60,000 or less.
