Alumni Giving Opportunities
Remembrance/In Memoriam Gifts
Donations can be made to honor the memory of a classmate, administration/faculty/staff member, friend, or loved one. If desired, the CAA can notify family members of gifts made in memory of the designee; the donation amount will not be specified but contact information must be provided. The name and CHS graduating class (if applicable) of the In-Memoriam donation designee will be listed in the Alumni Remembrance/In Memoriam section of this website. In-Memoriam donations can be designated for CAA-sponsored/supported efforts as outlined herein.
CAA Scholarship Gifts
Donations can be made to endow/fund CAA-sponsored scholarships. The number of scholarships awarded and/or their respective amounts will be reviewed and/or adjusted annually by the CAA Board based upon CAA fiscal status.
The CAA awarded its first scholarship on 11 April 2022 (for the 2021-22 academic year.) Going forward, the CAA will annually award two scholarships in 2022-23 and succeeding academic years. Both scholarships will be initially funded in the amount of $2000.
The scope of the original Ruth Elaine Shaw Memorial Scholarship has been narrowed to a strictly Science/Technology/Engineering/Mathematics (STEM) focus. It has been renamed the Ruth Elaine Shaw Memorial Scholarship – STEM Emphasis Scholarship with more stringent academic and qualification criteria.

The CAA also established the CHS Alumni Memorial Scholarship to honor the legacy and memory of CHS alumni, faculty, and staff. Click here for detailed info about the CHS Alumni Memorial Scholarship.
C-NP Schools Museum Gifts
Memorabilia: Arrangements for the donation of artifacts, items, and/or memorabilia can be made by contacting the designated CAA museum rep. Please Contact Us with information about your proposed donation or send an email to email@example.com.
Monetary Donation: All monetary donations designated for the museum will be transferred directly to the C-NP Schools Museum account maintained and operated by the C-NP School District Administration’s Chief Financial Officer. These donations will help ensure the continued operation of the museum and support future projects.
CAA-Sponsored/Supported Activities/Events/Projects Account Gifts or Payments
DONATIONS can be made to a CAA account used to fund expenses associated with CAA Board-approved/sponsored/supported activities, endeavors, events, and/or projects. These efforts include but are not limited to the Annual Alumni Golf Tournament; Annual All-Class Reunion Social; Annual C-NP Schools Teacher of the Year Reception/Presentation; CHS Athletic Hall of Fame Induction; CHS Homecoming.
Payments (non-tax-deductible) can also be made for Golf Tourney entry fees, Reunion/Social fees, and other pre-approved items/services.
Donations can be made to help sustain the tradition of excellence in the C-NP Schools through a planned gift to the CAA. One of the simplest ways is through a bequest in a will or estate plan.
General/Operating Expense Gifts
Donations can be made to help sustain the continued operation of the CAA via a general, non-designated monetary donation.
