+ - Thank-A-Donor

Thank-A-Donor is the signature annual event for the Student Philanthropy Initiative.
This event gives students the opportunity over four days to write thank you notes to generous Alumni donors. It's a quick yet meaningful way to let our donors know how much we appreciate them. Their gifts are what makes the Chapman experience exceptional!


Thank you to those that participated! We were able to thank over 1,700 alumni donors!
Congrats to Tri Delta and The Players' Society for writing the most notes!

If you have any questions or want to get involved, please email Sarah Buckley '14 at or (714) 744-2184.
