The Annual Fund: Each year, we invite alumnae, parents, and friends to contribute to the Annual Fund.

The Annual Fund benefits students through academic, athletic, spiritual and student life programming. It maintains the physical buildings and grounds, supports our faculty and employee salaries, and provides professional development opportunities. Gifts to the Annual Fund make an immediate impact on the quality of education and services the school can offer. These gifts are utilized in full each year, thus the need for annual renewal of gifts. The Annual Fund year follows the academic year and runs on a July 1 - June 30 cycle. Join today!

  • Endowed and Capital Gifts

    An investment of a capital or endowed gift serves to create a robust financial foundation upon which the school can sustain its success. Endowments provide Chatham Hall with permanent and predictable revenue to carry out its mission of preparing girls for college and success in life. Capital projects serve to build or renovate a physical facility. Endowed funds may be unrestricted or hold a donor-restricted purpose, such as for financial aid scholarships, faculty salary funds, program funds, or to sustain our buildings and grounds. A donor may add to an existing fund at any time.

    New funds will be established under guidelines set by the Board of Trustees. Endowed funds for Chatham Hall are professionally managed and the annual distribution or draw is governed by policies set by the Board of Trustees.

    To inquire about how to create or contribute to an endowed or capital fund, please contact Christine Knight, Director of Advancement at 434-432-5549.
  • Special Funds

    From time to time, a donor may desire to make a special fully expendable gift to support a particular program or initiative. To inquire about special opportunities, please contact Christine Knight, Director of Advancement at 434-432-5549.
  • Gift Planning

    There are numerous strategies to ensure Chatham Hall’s future through estate, financial, and tax planning. Giving cash or securities is not the only way to support Chatham Hall. Some planned gifts even pay families income for their lifetimes, before ultimately benefitting the school. Three of the most common planned gift vehicles—bequests, charitable remainder trusts, and gift annuities—are introduced in the documents here. For more details and expert assistance please see your tax advisor.
