CCLA Scholarship Program
About the CCLA Scholarship Dinner Program
How, you may ask, can I simultaneously have a wonderful meal, meet great new Cornellians and help provide much needed scholarships for deserving Los Angeles Cornell students? The Club’s annual series of Scholarship dinners & Events offers a chance for you to have a great time while benefitting CCLA’s Scholarship Endowment. Each year from September through Thanksgiving, generous Cornell hosts open their homes, their tables and other interesting venues to other scholarship-supporting Cornellians. One hundred per cent of all donations go to the endowment. As veteran attendees know, our Scholarship Dinners are a win-win-win deal for hosts, guests and the Club. Many go to more than one event; a few years ago one member attended six! In place since 1996, the CCLA Scholarship Endowment now stands well over $500,000. We are currently funding up to a dozen scholarships a year. The club is continuing to grow the Endowment through our Scholarship Dinner program and other fund-raising. Your tax adviser can explain how your Dinner costs may be deductible.
