Sister Carol has now served as president of Chestnut Hill College for 25 years during which time the College has experienced vast transformation. In honor of this milestone and her many achievements, CHC established the Sister Carol Fund for Academic Initiatives, which has now surpassed $100,000 in gifts from more than 150 generous members of the CHC community.
The Sister Carol Fund for Academic Initiatives will serve as a vital financial resource, providing funds for new academic programs and faculty initiatives. Gifts to this fund will keep CHC on the cutting edge of higher education, while maintaining our strength in the liberal arts. The goal is to continue to grow the fund to assist faculty and staff with providing a life-changing college experience for future generations of students.
Thanks to the support of alumni, friends, faculty and staff, the initial goal of $50,000 was met and exceeded. A special thank you to Michael & Margaret Carney McCaffery ’77, who first offered a challenge match of $25,000, and then increased to $30,000, and to Louise Bradley ’52 who offered another challenge gift of $10,000.
Chestnut Hill College thanks everyone who made a gift to this fund, and we encourage everyone to continue sharing messages of love and support for Sister Carol, either by posting them on social media using the hashtag (#SCJV25) or through our website. Donations to the fund are also still being accepted and are much appreciated.
