Esteemed members:

Greetings! On behalf of the executive board, I thank you for your continued support and dedication to the progress of our association.

  1. Finance

We thank fellow members who continue to meet their financial obligations to the association every year since the inception of our association. May the good Lord reward kindly for your support. We encourage all alumni to remain steadfast in their commitment to the progress of the association. We remind you that your generous donations provide us with the opportunities to embark on some special projects at our Alma mater and maintain a strong financial endowment. Furthermore, your alumni dues and other donations help us to fund other endeavors such as (1) the boarding school scholarship program for the CHSA students; (2) teacher retention; (3) class size reduction; (4) the aachsa website maintenance; (5) administrative operation; and (6) alumni outreach drive.

We urge fellow members who have not paid their past and/or current annual alumni dues and pledges to do so via PayPal, direct deposit, or Zelle money transfer. Please visit our website for more information and directions.

a. Annual Alumni Dues

The 2020 alumni or membership fee is $150, and we urge you to pay your dues via:

b. Endowment Fund

Our goal is $100,000 or more by September 5, 2020. We urge all alumni to pledge toward this goal. A pledge of $500 or more will be quite helpful in our effort to achieving the goal; however, any amount is very much appreciated. We continue to see progress in donations made, and we thank those who have pledged and fulfilled their financial obligations. We plan to publish the names of all donors very soon. Our finance department is currently compiling the names and amounts donated towards this endeavor, and we promise to post the information in a special edition of the newsletter.
