At Chapin, your generosity has helped us to secure our financial health and stability with substantial gifts to multi-year fundraising efforts. These investments in our long-term initiatives have enabled the School to both transform our building and reimagine our programs. Spectacular facilities include, most recently, the Hayot Center for Innovation, a hub for discovery, risk-taking and experimentation where generations of students can delve deeply into S.T.E.A.M. programming; and innovative spaces for athletics, music and dance. Other important additions have been the Annenberg Center for Learning and Research, science labs and classrooms, the Black Box Theater and the Lower Level Dining Room.

Programmatic support, such as endowments for professional development and financial aid, have allowed Chapin to maintain academic excellence, explore innovative curriculum changes, support diversity, equity and inclusion initiatives and enhance critical areas of health and wellness.

Chapin has contributed so much to our family,  for our children and grandchildren. As Chapin continues the tradition of providing these opportunities to other students, we have committed ourselves to supporting the School in this important endeavor.

"A legacy gift to Chapin feels like a wonderful way to honor the School and provide for it in the long term. It is also very empowering to make decisions about my financial future and know that I can include Chapin in my plans easily and thoughtfully."
