The Griffin Fund

The Griffin Fund

The Griffin Fund is a crucial resource that supports scholarships for deserving students; allows us to attract and retain talented faculty; and helps us offer diverse service-learning opportunities. Annual giving to the fund is the most important way you can support the College!


95 years of trailblazers

The first fifteen students admitted to Chestnut Hill College in 1924 blazed a path.

As they studied for exams and planned Christmas carols, they thought about their futures, and they also thought about yours. Wanting to help future students, the Class of 1928 raised money for their beloved school’s College Fund.

Ninety-five years later, CHC students can rely on the College Fund – now called the “Griffin Fund” – and a strong tradition of generosity, thanks to the help of the first fifteen students… and donors like you.

Give today and be part of the tradition!
