Events and Announcements
David R. Henderson is now our High Commander & Chieftan
Three of the founders of Clan Henderson Society are pictured: Claude A. Henderson, Beth Gay-Freeman and Horace Lofton. Claude Henderson served as the First High Commissioner for North America. He was devoted to the youth of our Society and worked tirelessly for the advancement of Highland Dance and Music. A Memorial Fund was established years ago to honor his service to CHS. That fund was used for various activities; however, it is now depleted. CHS leadership seeks to reestablish the Claude A. Henderson Memorial Fund for use by the clan.
You are invited to donate a small tax-deductible amount - $10.00, $20.00, $50.00 or $100.00 - to help renew the Claude A. Henderson Memorial Fund. The funds will be used within the clan as needed; however, the primary emphasis is upon providing scholarships/grants to deserving youths engaged in Celtic Performing Arts such as dance, music or visual arts.
Another fund that needs your tax-deductible donation is the CHS Chief’s Fund. It is dedicated to providing Academic Scholarships supporting Athletics Performance and assisting Performing Groups. Your contribution will be used by CHS: to provide money to deserving applicants/groups who, in the past, have gone unfunded; to assist scholarship winners to defray the increased costs of education; and, to support multi-year educational opportunities for these scholarship winners.
Please note that Clan Henderson Society has a Corporate Sponsorship Program where levels of support from business organizations range from $250.00 through $500.00 and $1,000.00 up to $2,500.00. We appreciate the business and corporate entities that are able to provide large donations; we also believe smaller donations from individuals are a part of the CHS effort to enhance our ability to provide scholarships/grants to deserving individuals and groups.
Please make checks payable to:
