One of the best ways to preserve and enhance Chestnut Hill College for future generations is to make a gift to the College’s endowment.
The General Endowment
The simple fact is that the endowment is the future of the College. All gifts designated to the endowment or an endowed fund become pooled principle and only the interest is used, so the initial investment may grow exponentially each year.
Interest from the endowment is used to support the College's operating expenses, to build programs for the future, and to cover unexpected expenses. A portion is reinvested in the endowment. The greater the endowment, the greater CHC’s financial stability.
The establishment of an endowed scholarship fund, which begins with a $10,000 gift, enables Chestnut Hill College to give every student the opportunity to benefit from a mission-based, academically rigorous, liberal arts education.
“It is because of our incredibly generous and thoughtful donors that students are able to experience the unique CHC education. They support students who are dedicated to service to others, to civility and to following their inner voice as well as the spiritual dimension of life,” says Kimberly Yost Moyer, senior director of development.
Together, endowment funds reflect the financial health of an institution. Organizations that rank and grade institutions of higher education consider the size of the endowment when awarding those ranks. For donors, endowment gifts offer the satisfaction and security of knowing their investment in Chestnut Hill College will have impact for generations to come. CHC’s goal is to strengthen our endowment for our student scholarships and to build for our future. When making your gift to Chestnut Hill College, please consider designating your gift for the endowment.
