Tell me about the Centennial Fund?

In 2002 Chico High School celebrated its 100th anniversary. If you remember, the community and alumni celebrated with a downtown parade and dinner at the Elk’s Club. As a result of this event, we raised approximately $28,000 which the organizing committee said must be endowed with the interest going to benefit students and programs at CHS. This decision served as a motivating reason to find a place to invest the monies. It started my relationship with the North Valley Community Foundation. It is also the reason the Fund is now a mini-grant funding source for CHS teachers.
