Charlie Trotter

Dear Friends of Charlie Trotter's Culinary Education Foundation (CTCEF):

Thank you for your past support of the Charlie Trotter's Culinary Education Foundation.

In mid 2016 Mrs. Rochelle Trotter established an endowment to continue her late husband's legacy of providing need based culinary scholarships to deserving youth. This new endowment is called the Charles and Rochelle Trotter Culinary Endowment. The Illinois Restaurant Association Educational Foundation was selected as the sole partner for distributing scholarships from this new endowment. The endowment and IRAEF have the shared goal of helping to develop our future industry leaders, and through this partnership will continue to provide scholarships to youth for culinary school. We would appreciate your continued support of Charlie's legacy by awarding scholarships to deserving students through the new endowment. 100% of all donations are allocated to scholarships and are tax deductible. The IRA Educational Foundation is a 501c3 organization.

To make a donation please visit the Charles and Rochelle Trotter Culinary Endowment page on the Illinois Restaurant Association's website. Please do NOT send any donations directly to CTCEF. All donations should be made payable according to information on the Illinois Restaurant Association website.

Thank you and Happy New Year!
