NCHSAA Endowed funds exist through contributions from individuals, businesses and other private sources. Contributions are invested and a portion of the interest income generated from these investments is available for program usage as designated and approved by the NCHSAA Board of Directors.
The NCHSAA Endowed Funds were established, respectively, in 1991 and 1996. The General Endowment's stated purpose was to preserve and create opportunities for student-athletes statewide participating in athletic programs at NCHSAA member high schools and to allow the Association to maintain quality programs and services fro its member high schools.
The Hall of Fame Endowment was created to preserve, recognize and honor school administrators who have given years of time, experience, passion for sports, and mentoring to the young athletes they worked with when actively coaching and teaching. Recognition is given at an annual Hall of Fame Banquet in the spring as well as special recognition at a collegiate game.
