CAVALIER ENDOWMENT SCHOLARSHIP FUND
In the year2015 the Chillicothe Education Foundation established the Cavalier Endowment Scholarship Fund. This fund enables future CHS graduates to pursue postsecondary education and to support faculty of Chillicothe City Schools who want to continue their scholarly pursuits.
A question to be asked is "How strong is the current that runs between a child and a community?" As alumni, we were enlightened by our years at Chillicothe High School . Special teachers who took the time to ignite our love of learning inspired us. In gratitude, we can brighten the lamp of learning and help CHS graduates & Chillicothe City Schools faculty achieve their scholarly dreams.
For many CHS students and faculty, financial restrictions curtail these dreams. The Chillicothecommunity and alumni of Chillicothe High School can provide a greater source of illumination that will linger in a graduate long after the initial flame is ignited. We want to encourage students to look beyond their high school years and faculty to continue their pursuit of learning. The Cavalier Endowment will provide substantial scholarships to CHS graduates and faculty.
Gifts and bequests will be managed and invested by Board of Trustees and Cavalier Endowment Treasurer as specified by the CEF. When assets reach $500,000 interest monies will begin funding scholarships. Contributions to the Scholarship Fund may be made in single payment, yearly pledge, and through wills, trusts and insurance policies. Some individuals may qualify for tax advantages since CEF is a 501(c) (3) corporation to which gifts are tax deductible. The CEF will be happy to provide additional tax information. Donors should also discuss their plans with their personal legal and financial consultants.
