» The Chapman Fund Executive Board

The Chapman Fund Executive Board is composed of distinguished alumni, parents, friends and philanthropists 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. As leaders, your support is more important now than ever before.

During this time in our lives, Chapman University was able to take the quick action needed to protect the well-being of our students, faculty and staff from the COVID-19 pandemic. The Chapman Fund is our University’s answer to this global crisis. As we focus our attention on those Chapman families struggling to make ends meet, Chapman Fund Executive Board level donations to The Chapman Fund will allow us to continue to respond.

If you are able to help us during this uncertain time, please consider joining the Chapman Fund Executive Board. Your gift will impact students now because it will be used immediately.

Together, we will make Chapman stronger than it has ever been.
