CHA Scholarship Fund

The Scholarship Fund was established on November 7, 1983 by the CHA Board of Commissioners and founded by former CHA Youth Services Coordinator John T Crawford. Dr. Crawford raised $64,990 to start the fund with a team of almost two-dozen community leaders and representatives. Later, it was established as an endowment fund with the Foundation For The Carolinas, in a working partnership with CHA.

The story of one amazing family, "Strong family fuels athletic, academic success" with the oldest son being  a CHASF recipient, is posted in related downloads below.

Since inception, the CHA Scholarship Fund has had 171 students graduate from 51 institutions.

No federal, state or local dollars are received for scholarships. The Fund exists through donations and contributions from individuals, businesses, churches, foundations and other groups, including CHA residents and employees. One all-volunteer committee raises scholarship funds and the other sets the guidelines, with the direction and administrative support of the respective organizations. Monies for the scholarship are raised annually, kicked off at an evening gala in the fall.
