The CHA Spring Benefit is our largest fundraiser of the year, making it possible for us to equip and inspire students to be lifetime followers of Jesus Christ who love and serve others.

Our vision is that every student is rooted in a deep love for God, known within our community, engaged in educational excellence, and inspired to make a difference.

We welcome gifts in advance, and will also provide an opportunity to support CHA at the event.
