» Support the Chapman Fund

Chapman University is committed to moving forward and constantly striving for excellence. As an institution, we are fully and unconditionally devoted to delivering the highest quality of education to our students. This is accomplished by consistently seeking out the finest faculty, research initiatives, facilities, programs and staff. However, the uncompromising dedication to excellence that has become the hallmark of Chapman University requires a robust financial foundation.

Enter the Chapman Fund. This source of unrestricted funds keeps Chapman’s remarkable vision moving forward by supporting a broad array of needs, including:

  • Scholarships
  • Faculty excellence
  • Student enrichment
  • Emerging needs

While strategic planning is a vital part of the university’s continued success and progress, oftentimes the most exciting opportunities and the greatest, most pressing needs of the Chapman community cannot be planned for or anticipated. By offering unrestricted support, the Chapman Fund affords university leadership the flexibility to embrace new ideas and emerging opportunities, while meeting the continually-evolving needs of the Chapman community.

Every student, faculty member and corner of campus benefits from the Chapman Fund.

It is truly the most powerful tool in unlocking the university’s potential.
