Croton-Harmon Education Foundation (CHEF) Board members will soon be spreading information about their goals and programs through a regular plan to meet interested school district residents for coffee and conversation. The first such opportunity—informally called “Meet-N-Greet”—will occur at the Black Cow on Sunday, April 23 at 10:00 AM. Subsequent “Meet-N-Greets” will take place at the Black Cow at the same time on the fourth Sunday of each month.
Residents are invited to meet with the board at the Black Cow to learn more about the programs that CHEF sponsors, share ideas for projects or programs that might enhance our schools, learn how to volunteer, provide new ideas about fundraising, or to simply learn more about CHEF. Currently, CHEF is in the middle of its Spring grant application cycle, so this is an ideal time to learn more about the foundation and pick up an application.
CHEF, started in 1999, is a non-profit foundation involving an active collaboration among parents, educators, and administrators, to supplement the school curriculum budget by providing funds for a variety of initiatives, many of which give students unique educational experiences that go beyond the scope of traditional classroom learning. Since its inception, CHEF has awarded over $200,000 in grants for these initiatives.
