Children Can Shape the Future (CCSF) Is a small, family foundation based in Philadelphia. CCSF supports innovative educational work through our unique, multi-step application process.

Our Story 

Now in our 11th year of funding, Children Can Shape the Future focuses our efforts on supporting innovative education in both Camden and Philadelphia. 

Our philanthropic model is built upon transparency and simplicity. CCSF's attitude and process are focused on moving against the grain and traditional values in the greater philanthropic community.

We passionately believe that there are brilliant educators in Camden and Philadelphia and our goal is to simply help make those individuals' dreams a reality. We aim to circumnavigate the messy, complicated, and often unaproachable world of the traditional non-profit.
