Learn About Children’s Fund of School Psychology

Children's Fund of School Psychology, Inc. (CFSP) is a nationwide organization and a recognized 501(c)(3) charitable organization that offers personal grants and advocates mental health care for children. For more than 35 years, we have made it our goal to provide various types of grants to schools and school personnel to help children with their basic needs.

DISASTER RELIEF FOR SCHOOL PSYCHOLOGISTS IN AFFECTED AREAS:

The Children's Fund is interested in helping school psychologists in the southeastern United States (Florida, Texas, Louisiana, Alabama, Georgia, etc.) and U.S. territories (Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands) restore mental health resources and tools lost during the recent hurricanes. We would like to help school psychologists in California and Montana who are grappling with loss due to wild fires. See the Grants page for more information about applying for a grant.

FUNDING for Disaster Relief will come from dedicated donations.  See the Member/Donate page to learn how you can help.
