A donation to Chapin School at the year's end may provide a tax benefit to you as well. Thanks to federal coronavirus relief legislation, taxpayers are now able to take advantage of a new deduction for donating to qualifying charities like Chapin — up to $300 for individual returns. This applies even if you don’t itemize, which is favorable news for many tax filers. Check with your tax advisor!


Investing in Chapin: 

Supporting our People and Our Program, Now More Than Ever! 

Since 1931, Chapin School has been providing an outstanding education for students, preparing them academically and socially, while always emphasizing character. The Chapin virtues: Respect, Responsibility, Honesty, Kindness, and Perseverance are central to the daily life of the school. 

Like other independent schools, Chapin counts on the generosity of our community to support the school through raising funds beyond tuition. This investment in the people and programs of Chapin allows us to continue to prosper and help generations of students to excel. Given the added expenses required by the pandemic, this support is needed more than ever.
