Registration is Open!


providing K-12th grade scholarships
for financially-disadvantaged New Jersey students
to receive a safe, quality, values-based education.


through education

By investing in the education of financially under-privileged children, Tri-County has discovered the antidote to multi-generational and systemic poverty.


Since 1981, Tri-County has awarded partial scholarships for K-12th grade. Our partner schools have offered discounted tuition and have provided safe, disciplined learning environments. Parents and families have sacrificed to provide the tuition balance and have remained invested in the process. This mutual cooperation has leveled the playing field for our scholarship recipients, providing game-changing opportunities and maximizing our student outcomes.

“Securing the future of our state’s most vulnerable is not only one of the most important causes we can support, but I believe it also provides the best return on investment in New Jersey philanthropy.”
