TTEF provides need-based scholarships to families in St. Louis and surrounding counties. Our work gives all children access to private and parochial elementary schools.
The Today and Tomorrow Educational Foundation (TTEF) was founded in 1991 as a 501(c)(3) organization by a concerned group of corporate and civic leaders, and has grown into largest elementary school scholarship organization in the state of Missouri and the 4th largest of its kind in the United States. Since its founding 30 years ago, TTEF has raised more than $175 million from local and national funding sources to provide need-based tuition assistance scholarships, enabling thousands of St. Louis children to attend the school of their choice.
Today, TTEF provides need-based, tuition assistance scholarships to any eligible family in St. Louis and the surrounding counties who desires to offer their Kindergarten through 8th grade child(ren) a private or parochial elementary school education.
Our vision is to provide children a pathway out of poverty through educational choice and opportunity. Working together, we can make this vision a reality. We can change the future, one child at a time.
