THE CHELKO FOUNDATION INC

Empowering Women

through art education and partnership by giving scholarships in the arts and providing humanitarian grants.

The Chelko Foundation was officially established in 2005 to commemorate the life of Paul Chelko’s wife, Debbie.

Paul had a vision for a world where women are free and no longer have to suffer and he set out to make a difference for women all over the world through empowerment.

After obtaining its non-profit 501(c)3 status in 2007, The Chelko Foundation was born into reality and no longer just a dream for Paul. His ideas for the Foundation, before his death June 2, 2007, were far reaching and will continue under the guidance of a select group of people hand picked by Paul.

“There are opportunities with the foundation for women to become empowered…to move beyond their present creative positions and create who they are individually and collectively as a more powerful and more effective voice in the world one that ends gender discrimination and creates the possibility of a future free from bias.”

Paul states; “Until women are free, no one is free. “  

The Chelko Foundation believes in maintaining an active global presence and as such, we have endeavored to host artful events which raise awareness and money to  provide Humanitarian grants and scholarships to women in the arts.
