OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - A Nebraska organization that gives out financial aid for K-12 students says increased donations have led to more students receiving scholarships.

The Children’s Scholarship Fund of Omaha tells the Omaha World-Herald (https://bit.ly/1ugDtjA ) it awarded $2.1 million in scholarships this school year, which is up about $300,000 from last year. The organization works with private schools to offer aid to low-income families.

The executive director of the fund says about $550,000 went to 367 new students. She says donations increased by about $400,000 this year.

The fund serves students in private schools throughout the Omaha area and northeast Nebraska.
