The Crafton Hills College Endowment Fund is a dedicated and permanent investment which provides long-term financial strength. The interest earned provides a critical source of annual funding for the College. The endowment underwrites scholarships, program support, and special projects. Because our endowment is invested for long-term growth, it ensures financial stability today, tomorrow and in perpetuity.
Whether through a current gift or one planned through your estate, making the decision to invest in the CHC Endowment fund is one of the most generous and forward-thinking ways possible to help generations of students for years to come.

Goal: To establish a $1M unrestricted endowment fund.
This fund will enable the Foundation to pivot as needs and demands change over time and because it is an endowment fund, it will be a perpetual resource for the life of the college.
The CHC Foundation provided the initial funds to establish the Honors Institute in 2013. This program was established as an option to provide highly motivated students with the opportunity to participate in an intellectual community of students with a shared purpose. Students who complete have opportunities to work closely with Honors faculty, participate in research conferences, and publish their original work. Students who complete the requirements of the Honors Institute will earn Honors notations on transcripts, special acknowledgement at commencement, and have priority consideration for admission to designated universities through honors transfer agreements. The Honors Institute has grown by over 50% in the last few years and is now one of the gems of Crafton.
The Emergency Assistance Fund was established to provide temporary financial assistance for students who are unable to meet immediate expenses, essential expenses because of a hardship related to an unforeseen/emergent situation. A student may be forced to drop out of their courses for lack of a relatively small sum to buy books, pay a car bill, or temporary child care. Regular financial aid programs typically fail to meet these immediate, unforeseen needs. This fund helps the Foundation to support students when other resources are not available.
