(West Chester, PA – July 20, 2021): The Chester County Community Foundation proudly awarded just over $500,000 in scholarships to 225 Chester County students in the last fiscal year. During July, the first month of its new fiscal year, the Community Foundation has awarded just shy of half that much:  $243,000 in scholarships to 108 Chester County students.

Thanks to our Scholarship Administrator Kevin Baffa and Business Affairs Associate Kaila Nogar for processing these awards in compliance with IRS guidelines.  And extra special thanks to the generous families and community groups who create and grow charitable scholarship funds, to give students opportunities to pursue their dreams.
