MBF is committed to protecting children by providing the best comprehensive, evidence-based/evidence-informed prevention education programs. We do this by partnering with schools, districts, and other organizations who will provide our programs to youth.
While we strive to keep program costs low, we realize there are some schools and organizations for whom financial resources are limited. Because we never want money to be the reason children and/or teens do not receive prevention education, MBF is offering limited scholarships.
Thanks to several generous donors, we now have the opportunity to support schools and organizations with their local prevention efforts by helping them begin implementing MBF Prevention Education Programs.
Scholarships are for schools or organizations who have not previously purchased any MBF program.
Each scholarship will provide one school, district, or organization with ONE MBF Program of your choice. (Value of $750-$1500):
MBF Child Safety Matters® – for elementary schools (grades K-5)
MBF Teen Safety Matters® – for middle schools (grades 6-8)
MBF Teen Safety Matters® – for high schools (grades 9-12)
MBF After-School Safety Matters® – for after-school programs and youth-serving organizations (for youth in grades K-8)
MBF Athlete Safety Matters® – for youth athletic organizations/programs (for youth in grades K-12)
Interested schools/organizations must apply for the scholarship. The number of available scholarships will vary over time and be dependent upon current donations.
Winners will be selected by a panel comprised of MBF team members, MBF Board of Directors, and/or donors based on application responses. All applicants will be notified of a decision via email. Please note, the timing of decisions will vary based on current allocated scholarship funds.
Recipients will be selected based on the school or organization’s:

Scholarship Terms & Conditions:
I and my school/organization agree to the following terms and conditions if selected to receive a scholarship:
There’s not a child in the world who can’t benefit from this program. There are so many instances where we see children who have been damaged and hurt. Things happened to them and we think, if they’d only had this program, if they’d only had the benefit of this education, that might not have happened to them. If we can prevent that from happening to a single child, then it’s worth all the effort we have put forth.
The MBF Teen Safety Matters curriculum hosts an in-depth approach to important social and safety concerns relevant to youth. The program content is age-appropriate with engaging activities, jargon, and realistic situations to positively promote a relatable and impacting learning experience…Teen Safety Matters is an educational benefit to all parties involved – students, parents, facilitators, and schools.
I heard about the program through my son. He came home…and showed me the safety rules. I cannot thank the Foundation enough; to have other people who are also concerned about my child’s safety and the safety of other kids is wonderful. I especially like the program’s focus on the prevention side.
