» Where to Give

At Chapman University, nothing is more important for our students than world-class faculty and cutting-edge learning opportunities. Choosing where to give your money to, from student scholarships, to schools and colleges, to centers and institutes, is an important decision.

Chapman Fund

Gifts to the Chapman Fund make it possible for the university to provide merit-based and need-based scholarships to more than 86% of its students. This fund also supports research, wellness, and more.

Schools and Colleges

With 11 different schools and colleges, Chapman University has a path for all students, no matter their goals or interests. Support of the schools and colleges directly impacts the academic excellence of the institution.

Scholarships and Student Success

Your support of students is an endorsement of their dreams. Giving a scholarship means students can pursue their dreams, whether it's dance or engineering, soccer, or film. A gift to student success encompasses athletics, student clubs, and more.

Campus, Centers, and Institutes

New spaces and the renovation of existing on-campus structures foster interdisciplinary collaboration among Chapman's schools and colleges. Research centers and institutes provide the backbone for Chapman's R2 research designation.

Inspire Campaign

Join Chapman in its newest campaign, Inspire, with an ambitious goal to raise $500 million. Will you become a partner in influencing the trajectory of a top university, its research, and the lives of its students?
