About the Basic Fund

The BASIC Fund is a privately funded program dedicated to broadening educational opportunities for children by
helping low-income families afford the cost of tuition at Bay Area private schools. The BASIC Fund scholarships
are based on household size and income. Scholarships cover 25%, 50%, or 75% of the family portion of the school’s
tuition, up to $2,750 per year per student. The family is responsible for paying the remaining tuition balance which
must be at least $500 (most pay more) for each school year.
