Believers & Achievers Gala

 

The Charlotte Housing Authority Scholarship Fund (CHASF) will host its 3rd CHASF Gala on April 28, 2018 at the Mint Museum in Uptown Charlotte. Proceeds from the Gala will help some of Charlotte’s economically disadvantaged students receive a well-deserved college education. 

Our founder, John T. Crawford, has had a vision to break the cycle of poverty and create economic opportunities and a brighter future for Charlotte’s young people through education.  The mission of CHASF is “To make certain that every child living in our public housing communities has both the opportunity for and an expectation of a college education.”   

2018 Awards

CHASF has had the pleasure of working with numerous partners in the Charlotte community over the last 34 years. Three of those partners will be recognized:

* Founder’s Award – This award is presented to an individual who through their years of patronage has supported the scholarship fund with their time, talent and treasure. John D. Richards, has been a champion and true supporter of CHASF since its inception.

* Mission Award – This award is presented to a community entity who through their patronage and partnership with CHASF have made significant contributions to its mission of assisting Charlotte youth and their families to afford college.  The Leon Levine Foundation, has supported CHASF since its endowment campaign by providing an annual scholarship opportunity for our students, and they continue to support us as we work to increase our students’ success through mentorship and life navigation.

* Partner’s Award – This award is presented to an organizational partner who has made a significant contribution in helping CHASF pursue its mission.  The University of North Carolina Charlotte has made significant contributions through its staff in helping CHASF pursue its mission to make a college education attainable for the youth of the Charlotte Housing Authority. The University has worked with us to put our attending recipients in touch with much needed resources, both academic and financial.
