SCS receives a grant in the amount of $9,025 to be used for capital expenditures.

Professional chamber choir St. Charles Singers is pleased to announce the receipt of a grant in the amount of $9,025 to be used for capital expenditures.  The board of directors and the administrative staff of SCS will use the funds granted to upgrade office technology, specifically purchasing new computers and software for a box office management system.

SCS Executive Director Kay Kendall says the staff deeply appreciates this generous gift.  “Every day we are hindered in this office by an antiquated box office system, slow computers and technical equipment that is not interactive.  The ability to upgrade all this equipment will allow us to work more efficiently and to better communicate with our audience, prospective audience, singers and donors. This gift will have a positive impact on nearly every aspect of our office routine.“

As a first-generation college student from a low-income family, I was worried about how I was going to pay for books and supplies. This scholarship will allow me to focus more on my studies instead of worrying about how to afford college. I am working to not only create opportunities for myself but to motivate future generations. Thank you so much for helping me along this journey!

A community foundation is a donor-driven organization that helps donors custom-design funds that reflect their charitable interests. Through the years, grants from these funds have made a significant impact on our local communities.

Thank you very much for supporting my college education for these four years. I will never be able to repay you for the opportunity that this scholarship has given to me.

Being a part of the Community Foundation scholarship committee is the highlight of my year. For many, a scholarship from the Community Foundation is the reason they are able to continue reaching for their dreams and changing the future of our world. I hope each recipient knows just how inspirational they are to those of us who are lucky enough to read their stories.
