TSF … making a difference for students and families …

” I wish we had extra $$ to contribute…. what these colleges charge these students today and the loans they end up with is unbelievable.  Keeps me and my husband up at night worrying about it.  We all work so hard and these kids work so hard in school and …. graduate with huge loans and can never catch up.  It just doesn’t make any sense at all to us but we are so very grateful we have TSF to help. Every bit helps!”      -TSF recipient parent
