To All CCHS Graduates:
This letter is to explain the $50,000 Founders Fund Program. The goal is for the
CCHS classes from 1940-2010 to raise at least $50,000 for the Founders Fund
for CCHSAA scholarships. Each class is hoping to raise at least $1,000 by
donating $5-$100 per classmate.
The money for the CCHSAA scholarships will be invested by the Whitley
County Community Foundation (WCCF), and only the interest or earnings
is awarded for the endowment scholarship. This endowment
fundraiser will run until the goal is reached.
Your contribution is tax deductible via a 501(c)3 program by the Whitley County
Community Foundation. Financial statements of the CCHSAA are always open
for viewing at WCCF. If you would like to contribute, please send your check

"SCHOLARSHIPS FOR FUTURE CCHS GRADUATES". You will receive a thank you
from CCHSAA and WCCF for your tax records.
