The Griffin Fund

Every year, Chestnut Hill College’s most loyal donors make gifts to the Griffin Fund knowing that it provides current-use support for the College to carry out its mission.

Your gift to the Griffin Fund provides crucial assistance to address the College’s greatest needs, including:

  • Providing bright, deserving students with critically-needed scholarships;
  • Offering internships and hands-on experiential learning opportunities;
  • Supporting projects to maintain the beauty and historic integrity of the campus; and
  • Enhancing the overall quality of the Chestnut Hill College experience.

Every gift, no matter the size, makes an immediate impact in the lives of CHC students!

Sister Kathryn Miller’s response to the Day of Giving in her honor:

March 20, 2020

My dear students, colleagues, alumni, and friends,

It was with deep affection and sincere humility that I have reflected on the heartfelt experiences leading up to Saint Joseph's Day 2020, the Day of Giving to Chestnut Hill College in my honor. I heard that many of you knew about this long before I did. This amazing surprise left me speechless - I am still in awe.

Words are inadequate to express my gratitude for your very generous participation. Each of you contributed in a special way. I have loved reviewing all of your names on the webpage ribbon and the many touching memories you shared. You brought smiles to my face and tears to my eyes. I look forward to receiving the book that will gather your cherished memories.

Although I will retire this summer from my ministry with the Board of Directors I look forward to seeing you occasionally at campus events and reunions. I also plan to offer some hours as a volunteer for the next year or so.

I close with the Mission of the Sisters of Saint Joseph which inspires and sustains my life and ministry. "We live and work so that all people may be united with God and with one another." At CHC, this spirit unites us in heart and spirit forever. Let us continue to pray for one another.

With love and gratitude!
Sister Kathryn Miller
