Ways You Can Make A Difference

 

Memorial Scholarships – These scholarships are awarded annually and on an as-funded basis. These are not endowed scholarships; they are funded annually by friends and family of those who wish to make an impact on the life of a single student. The minimum gift amount is $500. Due to IRS regulations the donor cannot designate who the scholarship will be awarded to but they may set the criteria such as: their chosen major, GPA, financial ability and more.

 

Endow a Scholarship – There are over 2,500 students that attend Chickasha Public Schools and approximately 150 graduating seniors. 80 % of these seniors are considered low–income. They will require financial aid each year and for many of them a scholarship will be the opportunity that enables them to fulfill their educational and career goals. The minimum endowment amount is $20,000.

 

Endow a Lecture Series – Would you like to give students the opportunity to hear from industry experts, poets, scientists, engineers or other speakers? You can be instrumental in inspiring future generations to reach for their full potential. The minimum endowment amount is $10,000.

 

A Charitable Bequest (provision in your will) – Include CPSF in your will or revocable trust – a simple, flexible way to maximize your legacy to CPSF.

 

A Charitable Lead Trust – Make a significant gift to CPSF right now while passing on an appreciated asset to your loved ones.

 

A Charitable Remainder Trust – Create a trust that pays you for a specified period of time and makes a gift of the remainder to CPSF.

 

A Retirement Asset – Donate the remainder of your retirement funds to CPSF and receive considerable tax advantages.
