The fund is FOR the Children's future education NOT for the Future education itself (Childrens' future education means FUTURE EDUCATION BELONGING TO THE CHILDREN)

Children is already plural, so the plural possessive would be children's, not childrens'.

If the plural form of a word ends in "s", such as dogs, to make it possessive, add the apostrophe after the "s" (dogs' collars). But if the plural ends in another letter, such as deer or children, to make it possessive add the apostrophe before the "s" (deer's antlers, children's education)

(B) the establishing of a fund for the future education of children
(C) establishing a fund for the children’s future education

Certainly C as children is already in plural.

whenever there is an apostrophe after S, like Childrens', it should be understood as something possessive to Childrens, which is not correct.

(A) the establishment of a fund for the children’s future education
The establishment is not parallel with providing and helping.
(B) the establishing of a fund for the future education of children
"The establishing" is not parallel with providing and helping.
(C) establishing a fund for the children’s future education
correct
(D) establishing a fund for the childrens’ future education
Children is already plural, so childrens doesn't make any sense.
(E) the establishment of a fund for the childrens’ future education
The establishment is not parallel with providing and helping.
