As alumnae, parents, grandparents, faculty and friends, you have already made lasting contributions to Chapin, and for that we are so thankful. In planning for your future and that of your loved ones, we hope that you will consider making another lasting investment in our school through Planned Giving.

Planned gifts help Chapin offer a peerless education to future generations of bright young women and ensure financial security for you and your loved ones. You can give back to the school while making sure that you have valuable income for many years.

If you are making a planned gift, please provide Chapin's tax ID number: 13-1635257.

As you consider your own life planning, we are happy to send you information that can assist you in combining your financial planning with charitable giving. You should also consult with your financial advisor. For further information, contact the Chapin Advancement Office at 212.744.5007 or

The members of our Planned Giving Committee are also wonderful resources if you would like more information about planned giving at Chapin.
