The Community Scholarship Foundation has been an integral part of our community since 1964. Nearly one thousand deserving students have benefited from our endeavors. Over the past 40 years, we have been able to provide nearly $1,000,000 in scholarships to support our youth in pursuing education beyond high school.

Without you this would not be possible. Your generosity and the support of the community is the heart of our organization. It is a both a privilege and blessing to live in La Cañada Flintridge. However, our wealth simply cannot be measured by individual incomes and property values, but rather in our collective dedication and spirit of people who strive for the betterment of our community and especially our youth.

By supporting CSF, you assist us in achieving our goal of offering financial assistance to support the promise of the young people who live in La Cañada Flintridge, on their journey to sbecome the citizens and leaders of tomorrow. Scholarships are granted on the basis of financial need, academic achievement, personal references, and outstanding achievements in character and integrity. It’s incredibly rewarding to see what a difference these funds make to these students. We ask you to join in the tradition and please donate to our annual DOLLARS FOR SCHOLARS campaign. Send whatever gift you can now.

No gift is too small.
