Campaigns and Special Funds

Campaigns and special funds are incredibly important parts of Chapin's endowment. They provide support for many special programs and opportunities for the students, such as music programs, robotics classes, special speakers and scholarships. Gifts to campaigns and special funds are always welcome and are invaluable in providing the best facilities and educational opportunities for the girls. Please contact the Advancement Office if you would like any information about any of the special funds below.

Focus Forward

Our strategic plan, “Focus Forward: Toward a Lifetime of Discovery,” will carry Chapin through to 2015. One of Focus Forward’s strategic goals is financial responsibility – providing for our programmatic initiatives while safeguarding Chapin’s financial future. Focus Forward seeks to raise $10 million by winter 2013.

Focus Forward has already taken Chapin to a new level of excellence and prepare our girls for the challenges and opportunities that await them. To read about specific ways donations to Focus Forward have shaped Chapin students already, please click HERE to download a PDF of Focus Forward stories.
