Francie Anhut Scholarship Fund

The Francie Anhut Scholarship Fund was established by family members, friends and CCD colleagues to honor Francie’s passion for CCD students. Francie joined CCD in May 2014 as the executive director of the CCD Foundation and passed away on October 24, 2016, after a 16-month battle with cancer.

This permanent endowment assists students with demonstrated financial need and a strong commitment to volunteer work and community service – two of Francie’s core values.
