Ways to Give

Did You Know?

The percentage of our alumni, staff and friends who contribute raises our overall participation rate -- an important fact to show interested corporate donors.

Monthly Giving

Giving monthly is easy, secure and a convenient way to support CHC with an amount most comfortable for your budget. Monthly gifts can be set up via credit card and are charged on the 15th of the month until notified otherwise. 


Secure Online Giving
Mail a Check

Please make your check payable to Chestnut Hill College and mail it to the following address.  Note any special designation on the memo line of your check.   

Chestnut Hill College
Office of Institutional Advancement
PO Box 12537

Matching Gift

You can increase your level of support through a matching gift.  If you work for (or are retired from) an organization with a matching gift program, you could double, and sometimes triple, the impact of your gift. Your spouse's employer also may have this program. Contact the applicable human resources office for information.

Memorial or Honorary Gift (Tribute Gift)

A tribute gift is a meaningful way to convey sympathy to the bereaved, memorialize a loved one, commemorate a special occasion, or honor a person’s life and accomplishments. Your gift to CHC made in honor or memory of this special person ensures a legacy that extends far into the future.


There are three ways to make a gift:

  • Give Online DONATE NOW

Please mention the name of the person you are honoring with your gift, and if there is a specific fund being used to honor this person. If you would like CHC to notify the honoree or a family member, please also indicate the name and address of the individual to be notified.

IRA Charitable Rollover

Donors 70½ or older are once again eligible to move up to $100,000 from their IRAs directly to qualified charities without having to pay income tax on the money. With the passage of the PATH Act of 2015 on December 18, 2015, the ability to do charitable rollovers is now permanent. To qualify for this calendar year, gifts must be made by December 31, 2017.

Here is a recap of the IRA charitable rollover rules. You can make a direct transfer if:

  1. The donor is age 70½ or older on the day of the gift.
  2. The donor transfers up to $100,000 directly from the donor’s IRA to one or more qualified charities. This opportunity applies only to IRAs and not to other types of retirement plans.
  3. The donor does not receive any goods or services in return for the rollover gift in order to qualify for tax-free treatment.

If you have any questions regarding this matter, contact Gini Calcerano, Senior Director of Research and Data Management at 215-242-7762 or
