Chris’s time with CEF has been a busy one. In fulfilling his second three year term, which includes 2 years of being Chair of the board, CEF has increased revenues dramatically. Under his leadership it has allowed CEF to not only provide teaching grants but also added new programs including Books on Break, Kindergarten Readiness Camp and other programs that have positively impacted the lives of thousands of students throughout all of Chatham County.

‘In the past 6 years, Chris Ehrenfeld had a significant impact on the success of the Chatham Education Foundation. As a board member, advocate for public education, board chair and major donor, Chris has helped to shape our extraordinary revenue growth of over 700% in the past 6 years. Chris was an integral part of the strategy team that added four new programs that continue to increase impact on our students and teachers right here in Chatham County. Chris has donated time and resources not only to the Chatham Education Foundation, but to families and students in Northern Chatham County through holiday giving and many other ways. His generosity is contagious, and he and his wife lead their lives by finding ways to help other local families in quiet and meaningful ways.” – Jaime Detzi, Executive Director, Chatham Education Foundation
