Chris Porter Scholarship Fund

Please now donate using the following website for donations: https://www.cfgcr.org/secure-donations/chris-porter-fund/ 


Teachers touch the lives of so many students and those young people reach out and touch others. One can never truly know the boundaries of their reach, the lives impacted and the differences made.

As a teacher, colleague, mentor and valued friend, Chris Porter, fifth-grade teacher, left her mark on all of us. We hold her lessons dear in our hearts and we honor the teacher she will always be.

The Bethlehem Central Community Foundation (BCCF) has announced its support of a new scholarship fund honoring the late Chris Porter, a longtime Bethlehem fifth grade teacher who passed away last fall after a battle with brain cancer.

The Porter family and the Bethlehem Central Community Foundation have partnered with the Community Foundation for the Greater Capital Region to manage the Chris Porter Fund. The Fund will support an annual scholarship to Bethlehem High School Students.

Please consider donating to The Chris Porter Scholarship so that Chris can continue to touch students’ lives forever.
