HUNTINGDON VALLEY - August means back to school season, and Sussman Automotive celebrated the end of summer by presenting a donation to Children's Scholarship Fund Philadelphia (CSFP) at Valley Christian School today. The donation, presented by Mr. Eric Sussman, will support CSFP students who attend one of CSFP's 170 partner schools. Thousands of Philadelphia children are headed back to school this season with the support of a need-based scholarship from CSFP.

Students from CSFP partner school Valley Christian School attended the presentation. CSFP partners with more than 170 diverse elementary and middle schools in the Philadelphia region to ensure that scholarship recipients can access schools that meet their needs. Partner schools include independent schools, Montessori schools, special needs schools, and faith-based schools representing 10 different religions. All scholarships are distributed by random lottery to children living within Philadelphia city limits.

Sussman Automotive's donation is made through the PA Educational Improvement Tax Credit program (EITC), which provides state tax credits to companies who support scholarship organizations like CSFP. The donation will provide crucial assistance for children who, if not for the scholarship, may instead attend a school that is among the lowest-performing in the Commonwealth. "When children have a foundation for success, they can go far. These scholarships help them build that foundation, and change the course of their lives," said Mr. Eric Sussman.
