CHISPA Annual Celebration

CHISPA hosts one community fundraising event each year – our Annual Celebration. This yearly celebration brings the community together to share in the achievements of CHISPA, our community partners, and our scholarship students. Proceeds from the Annual Celebration helps to pay for CHISPA’s community services and adds to the endowments of the CHISPA scholarships at Hartnell College, California State University, Monterey Bay (CSUMB), as well as and endowment for use at other accredited universities and colleges in California through the Community Foundation for Monterey County.

CHISPA will not hold the Annual Celebration this year (2021) in response to the Stay-At-Home restrictions to prevent further spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19). The scholarships will continue to be awarded, and the resident programs, with modifications, are continuing throughout the quarantine period.

While we cannot meet in person to celebrate, we hope you will consider supporting our students and our community services again this year. We are applying for matching grants to support our scholarship endowments, which will leverage any contributions made.  To donate, click on the Donate button at the upper right of the screen, and make a donation at any amount you wish.
