Chapin Fund

The Chapin Fund is the most important of the school’s fundraising initiatives. Gifts to the Chapin Fund support every student and teacher and help to sustain the outstanding education the school has provided to generations of students.

The Chapin Fund, which runs annually from July 1 to June 30, supports the operating budget of the school and all gifts are put to immediate use. Participating in the Chapin Fund is a vote of confidence in Chapin. Your investment sends a strong message to the community – that you believe in the core mission of the school.

Gifts to the Chapin Fund help to:

  • Sustain robust academics, enhance arts, improve athletics, provide state-of-the-art technology, and enrich experiential extracurricular programs

  • Attract and retain an exceptional faculty with competitive compensation and opportunities for professional growth

  • Broaden the socioeconomic diversity of our student body through financial aid
