Why We Do What We Do

Our Motivation


We provide tax credit scholarships for public school students to attend the private school of their parents’ choice. Parents are not limited to a group of partner schools. We offer opportunities for students to learn more, do more and become more.

The story below illustrates that we can make a difference, even if it’s one student at a time. Join us and make a difference.


Our Motivation Story

One day a man was walking along the beach when he noticed a boy picking something up and gently throwing it into the ocean.

Approaching the boy, he asked, “What are you doing?”
The youth replied, “Throwing starfish back into the ocean.

The surf is up and the tide is going out. If I don’t throw them back, they’ll die.” “Son,” the man said, “Don’t you realize there are miles and miles of beach and hundreds of starfish? You can’t possibly make a difference!”

After listening politely, the boy bent down, picked up another starfish, and threw it back into the surf. Then, smiling at the man, he said, “I made a difference for that one.”
