Our organization, comprised completely of volunteers, raises scholarship money for students who display financial need to provide them with financial assistance to help support their educational endeavors. Each year we host two special events to raise money for the scholarship fund. Every dollar raised goes toward the CAPFAA Scholarship Fund. In 2019, we awarded six students $1,000 dollars each. Our goal is to increase the number of recipients and the amount awarded.
