A Financial Bridge

OSF helps Oklahoma’s low-income families gain access to the learning environment that’s right for them

OUR MISSION

OSF helps low-income families bridge the financial gap between what they can afford and what is best suited for their student for specialized PreK-12 education. Our program helps kids of all backgrounds, from those struggling with bullying and behavioral challenges to learning disabilities, substance abuse, and homelessness.

How It Works

Oklahomans donate funds to OSF for scholarships

OSF accepts donations, manages applications, ensures compliance and awards scholarships

Opportunity Scholarship Fund

Scholarships for Oklahoma students, educational choice for Oklahoma families!

Lauren Clay, a mother of three, was desperate for another education option. It was her dream for her children to attend Christian Heritage Academy, but due to the cost of tuition, it seemed out of reach. Thankfully, Lauren found the Opportunity Scholarship Fund.

"We applied, and we were accepted. It almost seemed too good to be true. Having options for education is something that you cannot put a price tag on. I am so thankful that this is an option for our family!"
