Expanding Access to Quality Schooling

Building Missouri’s future–one scholarship and student at a time.

Each student has unique needs. Sometimes those needs fall outside the range of public school offerings. Many families looking for alternatives don’t have the funds to attend school that truly works for their child. At Herzog Tomorrow Foundation, we strive to connect families to high-standard education that meets their child’s needs, regardless of cost, through our MOScholars program.

The Herzog Tomorrow Foundation is an Educational Assistance Organization (EAO) under MOScholars that provides the most comprehensive statewide scholarship support for private schools and the families they serve. Our charitable supporters, robust network, and personalized service help us make the greatest impact on Missouri families with private school tuition scholarships.

Our Mission

Our mission is to benefit Missouri and our network of parents, schools, and supporters, through our scholarship program that will allow the next generation to flourish.

Our History

Herzog Tomorrow Foundation was created in 2022 as an Educational Assistance Organization (EAO) for the MOScholars program to meet the ever-increasing need for quality education in Missouri. Our goal is to impact as many lives as possible through education for years to come!

About MOScholars, Missouri's K-12 Scholarship Program

In 2021, the State of Missouri passed a program known as MOScholars, an initiative designed to award scholarships to students from low-income households or with individualized education plans (IEPs). It provides dollar-for-dollar tax credits in exchange for contributions to approved Educational Assistance Organizations (EAOs), such as the Herzog Tomorrow Foundation.

While families can choose from various EAOs, the Herzog Tomorrow Foundation has the most comprehensive network with schools throughout the state for robust opportunities for students.
