Awarding scholarships to students is among the most rewarding kinds of philanthropy. Create a lasting legacy by investing charitable dollars directly in the future of deserving students in our community. Our scholarship funds provide an opportunity for donors to honor their loved ones, support the hard work of local students and help the next generation of community leaders develop skills they need to be successful. Our scholarships can support students, no matter their age or where they are in their educational journey.

We have been awarding scholarships for over 60 years to local students through the generosity of people like you who want to make educational opportunities available to more students. We are the largest awarder of scholarship funds in the region. In 2023, CKCF awarded 182 scholarships totaling over $350,000 to 142 local students. Just as education is critical to achieving community and economic development, scholarships are essential to further education. Scholarships expand our youth’s opportunities for educational advancement. This educational access facilitates life dreams and career options that lead to financial independence.

We work with donors who desire to make these opportunities available to people, students who can benefit from both the financial investment and personal empowerment from a scholarship award, and colleges and universities to streamline the process for both the donor and student.
CKCF offers scholarship donors the opportunity to select specific scholarship criteria and be involved with awarding the scholarship. We can also take care of those details if you prefer.

Whatever your goals are for awarding scholarships, we are here to help. If you are interested in starting a scholarship fund, contact us today or follow the links to learn more.
