The Annual Fund

The Annual Fund

Worth Remembering. Worth Sustaining.

The Parent FundChatham Hall is a school built on 122 years of tradition. Philanthropy is at the center of that tradition.

Chatham Hall girls are leaders, scholars, volunteers, runners, riders, rhetoricians, swimmers, scientists, dancers, world-travelers, photographers, painters, sculptors, writers, singers, jokesters, and friends. Our girls know their roots. They come together in celebration and in difficulty. Chatham Hall girls ask tough questions, and don’t stop until they find answers. They care about the people of this community. They want to improve the world around them. These young women are the reason Chatham Hall is strong today.

A gift to the Annual Fund is a demonstration of your commitment to the vision and direction of Chatham Hall. It is an acknowledgement of the investment that this school put into you. It is a voice of support for the next generation of Chatham Hall leaders. Last year, hundreds of alumnae, parents, and friends of Chatham Hall contributed gifts–both large and small–to support the program and people that keep Chatham Hall strong.

• Tuition and Endowment income make up roughly 88% of the annual operating budget for Chatham Hall
• Last year, Alumnae and Friends of Chatham Hall raised an impressive total of $1.3 million for the Annual Fund
• 39% of the alumnae body gave last year 

So join us in supporting the girls, and tradition, of Chatham Hall by giving to the 2016-2017 Annual Fund!
