The Chaffin Luhana Foundation
Law partners Eric Chaffin and Roopal Luhana, along with their families, established The Chaffin Luhana Foundation in 2010 to honor their humble roots and build upon the values of integrity and resilience instilled in them by their hardworking parents.
A not-for-profit organization, the Foundation encourages the development of human potential and supports community empowerment through the endowment of funds to deserving recipients, the creation of community-based enrichment projects, and the support of important scientific research that meaningfully impacts the under-privileged and sick in society.
With the goal of fostering acceptance, understanding, and an inclusive and healthy environment for everyone, the Foundation seeks to highlight individuals who are displaying outstanding characteristics in their lives, and bring all walks of life together in ways that invite positive interaction, while rewarding those resilient people willing to face difficult challenges, get back up, and surge forth once again.

Stephani Victor Legacy Award
Each year, the Chaffin Luhana Foundation awards a financial gift to one deserving individual who overcome significant challenges and achieved great milestones in his or her life or career, or who give back in unique ways to his or her community.
Research and Scholarship Grants / Outreach Projects
The Foundation awards periodic financial gifts to institutions of higher learning for the purpose of supporting scientific research, and funds educational scholarships to students. The Foundation is able to do this by creating and presenting at least one new project every five years.
Chaffin Luhana Anti-Distracted Driving Scholarship
One of the Chaffin Luhana Foundation’s missions is to drive down the staggering number of distracted driving accidents in the United States. The Foundation will be awarding nearly $5,000 in scholarships in 2016-17 to students who help us in this fight by submitting an inspiring personal essay. In order to be considered, the applicant must first post the essay or a link to the essay on Facebook, Twitter, or another social media outlet. There are two submission deadlines. One is being offered for a student in Allegheny County, PA and the other is across the country. Make sure to check out the "Scholarship" tab for more information.
end distracted driving
The Chaffin Luhana Foundation is committed to promoting student awareness about the perils of distracted driving and to end distracted driving. “EndDD” was created by Joel Feldman and his wife Dianne who lost their daughter, Casey, to a distracted driver when she was just 21 years old. Chaffin Luhana Partner Eric Chaffin has made several EndDD (end distracted driving) presentations to national organizations and students in the Ohio Valley. Paralympian and Chaffin Luhana Foundation Spokesperson, Stephani Victor, joined Eric to present to students at four separate high schools in the Fall of 2014 to raise awareness and educate teens on this very important issue.
