"Because of our daughter's medical condition she fell behind in school which caused her (and us) great anxiety."

Anderson, South Carolina

“Because of our daughter’s medical condition she fell behind in school which caused her (and us) great anxiety.

The overwhelmed public school system simply could not give us the personalized attention we needed for our daughter.

Given that situation and now Covid-19, private schooling is truly the best choice for our middle school child. We had just learned of the Grant before we started the application process and we were relieved hoping that the grant would help us financially.

We own a small business which has been hurt because of the virus and the hope of any financial assistance was assuring.

We have had to move forward with the private school option because that is what is best for our daughter, but golly, it would be a huge blessing to have the financial assistance of the SAFE Grant!”
