Making an Impact: CAHEC at Work
July 1, 2016 – June 30, 2017

The CAHEC Foundation

The CAHEC Foundation

The CAHEC Foundation, a nonprofit affiliate of CAHEC, improves the quality of life for youth and young adults through wellness and education. Our focus of offering these life-changing initiatives began with CAHEC’s Community Investments, where more than $13 million has been invested towards assisting residents and their communities – over $5 million of which has been dedicated to wellness and education alone. By continuing to offer these initiatives, the CAHEC Foundation creates opportunities that go beyond affordable housing to help low-income residents obtain the critical resources they need to succeed.

Drew Charter School Donation
The CAHEC Foundation believes a higher education can provide endless opportunities for the residents in our footprint. This year, we were proud to partner with Drew Charter School, one of our New Markets Tax Credits Investments in Atlanta, GA, to provide four $5,000 scholarships to its first graduating class. As part of the application process, students were asked how they exemplify their school Norms: show respect, act responsibly, present professionally, and honor trust. Congratulations to John Mali, Mikayla Carney, Kiara Davis, and Yvette Pines, on being the first Norms Scholarship recipients for the class of 2017.

Food Assistance
Food insecurity is a problem that exists for thousands of families throughout our footprint – especially in the summer. By partnering with local organizations and food banks, the CAHEC Foundation connects youth to nutritious meals during a time when they need it most. The East Durham Children’s Initiative is one organization we are proud to partner with to help ensure kids are healthy and ready to learn when they return to school in the fall. “We are grateful to the CAHEC Foundation for recognizing and responding to this critical need affecting so many families,” David Reese, President and CEO of EDCI, said. “Thank you for supporting our program!”

Camp Challenge
The CAHEC Foundation is a proud sponsor of the North Carolina Bankers Association Foundation’s Camp Challenge. This week-long summer camp gives middle-school students a traditional camp experience, including sleeping in a cabin and signing up for activities like archery, ropes courses, and swimming. Camp Challenge students also participate in a financial literacy course, which includes topics on careers, income, budgets, and entrepreneurship. This positive camp experience allows students to have fun while also improving their overall financial education.
