»Women of Chapman

WOC LogoWomen of Chapman is a vibrant group of philanthropic-minded women who are  strongly dedicated to a program of service to Chapman University. Members enjoy a number of educational and fashion-oriented programs throughout the year, including the group’s signature fundraising event, Christmas at The Ritz. Starting with just 35 members when it was founded in 1971, the group now comprises more than 250 Women of Chapman.

Over the past four decades, Women of Chapman has given nearly $6.25 million in gifts to support Chapman University.  Gifts from Women of Chapman have been designated for student scholarships and various programs and capital campaigns across campus.

The group’s recent $1.5 million pledge of support to two major capital campaigns is the largest in Women of Chapman history. This gift will name the Women of Chapman Center Stage in the state-of-the-art new Musco Center for the Arts and new educational facilities (more details coming soon) in the planned expansion of Dodge College’s Marion Knott Studios.

  • Women of Chapman Endowed Filmmaker Fund, which supports senior film projects for students in Dodge College of Film and Media Arts
  • Scholarship support over the years to World Campus Afloat (Semester at Sea) and later to Chapman’s general scholarship fund
