College Heights Foundation
The College Heights Foundation (CHF) provides assistance and encouragement to deserving students enrolled at Western Kentucky University.
CHF has been a Guardian of Trusts since founding in 1923 when a faculty member gave $100 to Dr. Henry Hardin Cherry to assist worthy and deserving students. With support from alumni, corporations, organizations, and other friends our scholarship fund has grown to over $75 million in assets.
The CHF is governed by a Board of Directors made up of twelve prominent business and professional leaders who serve without remuneration. The CHF is a fully-qualified, tax-exempt organization under Section 501 (c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
The College Heights Foundation is proud to provide scholarship assistance to worthy and deserving students attending Western Kentucky University. The CHF serves as the “Guardian of Trusts” to more than 1,200 different scholarship funds that each tell their own unique story.
