» I'M IN!: Chapman Faculty-Staff Giving

As a member of the faculty or staff at Chapman, you invest your time and talent in the University and our students every day. Your tireless work, energy and commitment ensures Chapman can continue to deliver on its mission and ascend the list of America’s top universities. Thank you for all you do.

Another way you can show your belief in Chapman is to support our culture of excellence through a charitable donation. Join the I’M IN! Faculty-Staff Giving campaign today by making a donation of any amount to the fund of your choice.

Consider honoring a coworker with your gift. By designating a coworker, you’re making a meaningful statement that this person has made a positive impact on you and/or your department. Your designation not only serves as a way to show gratitude to your coworker, but it may also inspire them to join you in supporting Chapman through giving.

Making a gift to Chapman University of any amount to the fund of your choice speaks volumes about your pride in our institution and your commitment to its continued success.

+ - Why does my gift matter?

Will my gift really make a difference?

Absolutely. Just as working together as colleagues creates a powerful synergy, coming together as a community to support our University through giving has a significant collective impact. The more faculty and staff who choose to donate, the greater the impact. We have a goal of 100% participation and we hope you will join us to reach the finish line.

I work at Chapman; why should I also donate to the University?

As a member of the faculty or staff, your gift speaks volumes about your commitment to the University and your belief in Chapman’s mission. Through your dedication to your role at Chapman and your generosity, you are sending a powerful and inspiring message to our students and our fellow Chapman Family members.

In addition, corporations and foundations will often look for a strong showing of charitable support from faculty and staff when making funding decisions.

Students pay tuition; why does the University need my charitable support?

It might surprise you to learn that tuition does not fully cover the cost of a Chapman University education. The generosity of our donors, including faculty and staff, enables us to cover the difference, and affords us the support needed to provide a personalized education to each and every student.
