2016 Community Donations Total Announced

2016 donations are record amount!

Chilimania is proud to announce the full list of 2016 donations made to the community and various service groups.

A total of $19,175 was donated or awarded in the past year. Those monies were split between college scholarships for high school seniors ($10,500) and donations to 20 Edgerton-area community organizations and service groups ($8,675).

This is the most money that Chilimania has ever given back in a single calendar year! This success is all thanks to the generosity of our sponsors and the money spent by Chilimania attendees that allow us to give back — and increase those amounts — year after year.

High school scholarships

In May 2016, seven (7) Chilimania scholarships, each with a maximum value of $1,500,  were awarded to deserving Edgerton High School seniors to assist them with their college tuition costs.

This was the second straight year that Chilimania has increased its scholarship awards — from $9,000 for the Class of 2015 to $10,500 for the Class of 2016 — and we are pleased to say that we plan to award $10,500 again in May 2017!
