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 passionatly believe that there are brilliant eduactors in Camden and Philadelphia and our gaol is to simply hlep make those individual's dreams a reality. We aim to circumnavigage the messy, complicatied, and often unaproachale world of the traidtional non-profit.
