During their lifetimes, the Chins made plans to open an endowed scholarship after their passing with the remaining balance from their Charitable Remainder Trust.

With the assistance of our staff, you determine the eligibility criteria, field of study, award amount, and choice of institutions — from trade schools and community colleges to four-year universities. Depending on the degree to which you’d like to be involved, you may even choose to be a part of the selection committee.
The minimum to open a Scholarship Fund is $25,000. You may use cash, stock, or other appreciated assets to create your Scholarship Fund and qualify for an immediate income tax deduction in the year the gift is made. The Foundation’s staff will publicize the scholarship, guide the selection process and finally, send the award(s) to the educational institution the recipients choose to attend.
