Our Mission

CSF’s unique mission is in the type of students we seek to award scholarships.  We believe success is not measured simply by GPA. We believe that successful people work hard, persevere and then succeed on determination and willpower.  We are proud that our recipients may reapply for the next three years.  Any student with a 3.0 GPA is encouraged to apply.

The Community Scholarship Foundation of La Cañada Flintridge, Inc. (CSF), has been granting scholarships to graduating seniors for the past  55 years!

Our meetings have been revised this year to four general meetings.  Committees are established at the first meeting.  Committee chairs will establish their own meeting schedule, providing summary reports at the general meetings. Committees will be encouraged to meet as their schedule allows and communicate via phone and email to facilitate their duties. The Annual Scholarship Luncheon is held in June of each year.

Current levels of membership are: ACTIVE and SUSTAINING. Active members participate on committees, attend meetings and events, and are committed to furthering CSF’s mission.  Active member dues are $100 per year.  Sustaining members are members who support our cause, but are not able to commit to participating at meetings or on committees. Sustaining member dues are $200 per year.
