» The Chapman Fund Executive Board

The Chapman Fund Executive Board is composed of distinguished parents, alumni and friends who demonstrate extraordinary dedication and commitment to the mission and vision of Chapman University through annual gifts of $25,000 or more to the Chapman Fund.

Chapman Fund Executive Board members have the unique opportunity to play a prominent leadership role in shaping the future of Chapman, not only through their own donations, but by rising to the challenge of recruiting others to contribute and by having regular opportunities to actively engage with University administration.

In joining the Chapman Fund Executive Board, you will deepen your relationship with faculty and administration, alumni, friends and students. You will develop meaningful relationships within the University, including Provost Glenn M. Pfeiffer, Ph.D. and other leaders and board members. If you are a parent, you may even choose to stay active on the board after your student graduates.

You will also have exclusive access to special events and meetings with the interim provost, who will serve not only as a valuable partner to you but will also be available to communicate with you directly. This is a unique opportunity that will allow you to have a real and immediate impact on the University.

Chapman Fund Executive Board members take on a leadership role in reaching out to the community on behalf of Chapman, taking personal responsibility for the critically important task of explaining the immediate and vital impact that unrestricted giving has on Chapman’s ability to further its educational mission.

We invite you to take advantage of this unique philanthropic opportunity to provide your leadership and guidance in shaping the future of Chapman University as a member of the Chapman Fund Executive Board.  To learn more, contact the Annual Giving team at (714) 628-2834 or annualgiving@chapman.edu.
