The Charlotte Housing Authority Scholarship Fund (CHASF) will host its 5th CHASF Gala on April 25, 2020 at Discovery Place 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.”
