Our fundraising goal: $4 million
The EHSAF currently has an endowment fund of almost $4.5 million. In 2020 the fund awarded $186,700 in post-secondary scholarships to 87 students. Despite this admirable trend of success, the EHSAF is now seeking additional funds to reach more students and enhance the educational experience at East High.
It is against this background that the East High School Alumni Foundation crafted its mission to help as many students as possible obtain a higher education and adopted the East High School motto, “For the Service of Humanity.” “The East High School Alumni Foundation (EHSAF) provides an avenue for alumni, businesses and the community to contribute to scholarships for deserving East High graduates to pursue their higher education.”
In addition to expanding our scholarship fund by $500,000, we also are seeking $3.5 million to update and upgrade East High School’s outdoor facilities. This would allow us to improve East High School extracurricular facilities and equipment for arts and athletic programs, which currently lag behind comparable facilities and equipment at the surrounding suburban schools.
We will be going into a public phase soon and will have more details posted. Watch this site for more details.
