SAHCCEF’s programs are designed to:

To provide college scholarships for the brightest and most committed students, regardless of their financial standing.

To help students by giving them the inspiration and motivation and mentoring they need to reach accomplishments they might have thought were out of reach. 

To prepare those who choose not to go to college to be ready to become productive members of society upon graduation through financial assistance to attend career and technical centers. 

To help teachers and schools do what they do best, by giving them mini-grants to fund innovative classroom and school projects designed to stimulate young minds.

To teach children and young adults, to take pride in their heritage and culture, which can help them in their educational success and development. 

And finally, to engage our community so that it will help us meet our mission and strive for academic achievement for all.
