Giving to Chestnut Hill College

Dear Friend,

Gifts from alumni, parents and friends are vital to sustain Chestnut Hill College.  Gifts help to ensure students gain an excellent education, prepare for life and work, and are grounded in the Mission and values of the Sisters of Saint Joseph who practice an active and inclusive love for all people.

There is much to be proud of at Chestnut Hill College.

At a time when many other colleges and universities are struggling, we have better news to share than most. While others have seen their enrollment decline, ours has held steady. We have worked hard to continue to be appealing to students and their families during these challenging times, and will continue to do so. 

Chestnut Hill College has thrived by being proactive in many ways.  We are building a growing list of internship opportunities for our undergraduates, including an agreement with the prestigious Fox Chase Cancer Center for select science students to conduct supervised research in their labs. We have added new sports to our athletics program, which now includes 20 varsity sports. We have a thriving exchange program for our students with international colleges and universities, and in turn we welcome many to the Chestnut Hill campus. We provide service-learning opportunities, which offer students the experience of helping many marginalized citizens of Philadelphia such as those living in poverty, and/or whom are elderly and in need of care. We have added new and exciting majors, such as cyber-security, exercise science and restorative justice. All of these elements create a foundation for an exciting future.

As the landscape for institutions of higher education continues to be uncertain, we will redouble our efforts to be relevant.  At the same time, your support is critical to sustain Chestnut Hill College into the future.  

Please remember that: “A Griffin’s first and most important gift is to the Griffin Fund”. For those interested in also supporting capital projects, please see the opportunities detailed.

Thank you for visiting these pages and for your interest in furthering the Mission and values of Chestnut Hill College.

Warm regards,

Susannah Coleman

Vice President for Institutional Advancement
