ABOUT CHEF OF ALABAMA
We exist to encourage home educators and promote a safe legal environment for homeschooling in Alabama.
The Christian Home Education Fellowship of Alabama was formed in 1988 with the mission to encourage home educators by providing information and resources and to promote a safe legal environment for home schooling in Alabama.
CHEF is a nonprofit corporation under IRC 501(c)(4). That means we are organized as a community development organization with emphasis in education from the Christian perspective. This type of organization allows us to provide services as a nonprofit tax-exempt entity while giving us the freedom to speak to legislative and public policy issues that might affect our constituency. We accept donations as a non-profit organization, but these donations are not tax deductible because of our 501(c)(4) status.
CHEF is governed by a self-perpetuating volunteer board of veteran home educators from across Alabama. Each family unit on the board has been active in local leadership for a number of years and brings to the board a wealth of experience in Christian home education.
