There are many ways to give to help maximize the impact of the scholarships for K-12 schoolchildren.
Step Up For Students administers two scholarships for Florida schoolchildren. It's a good start, but there's much more that needs to be done.

Your employees can make a difference in the lives of more than 100,000 schoolchildren from lower-income families and those with certain special needs. Won’t you please help contribute to their success?
Step Up For Students administers two scholarship programs for Florida schoolchildren as young as 3 years old.
For 15 years, low-income families have been benefiting from the Florida Tax Credit Scholarship, which allows families with students in kindergarten through 12th grade to direct funds towards tuition and fees at a private school or to transportation expenses to an out-of-district public school.
For students ages 3 to 22 with certain special needs, the Gardiner Scholarship program puts parents in the driver’s seat allowing them to use scholarship funds like a savings account. Scholarship funds can be spent on crucial needs such as therapies, assistive technological devices, and even towards tuition and fees at a participating private school of the parent’s choice.
