Ways to Give

The Chatham Hall Fund benefits students through academic, athletic, spiritual, and student life programming.

It maintains the physical buildings and grounds, supports employee salaries, and provides professional development opportunities. Gifts to the Fund make an immediate impact on the quality of education and services the School can offer. These gifts are utilized in full each year, making annual renewal even more important.

We hope you will consider joining this community effort and making your gift before June 30!

  • Endowed & 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 Chief Advancement Officer Christine Knight at 434.432.5549 or cknight@chathamhall.org.
  • 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 Chief Advancement Officer Christine Knight at 434.432.5549 or cknight@chathamhall.org.

  • Stocks & Mutual Funds

    For DTC (Depository Trust Company, a securities clearing house) eligible securities: Authorize your broker to transfer shares to the Chatham Hall account.

    Before making a transfer, contact the Office of Advancement at 434.432.5600 with the name/ticker symbol, number of shares, and estimated value and fund designation (e.g. Chatham Hall Fund).

    Clearing BrokerCharles Schwab
    DTC: #0164
    Account Number:#62115540
    Code: 40
    Reference: Donor’s Name

    A stock held more than one year may qualify for a charitable income tax deduction equal to the securities’ full fair-market value. It is also possible to make a gift with appreciated securities in a mutual fund. The tax advantage of the gift is lost if you instruct your broker to sell the stock and send the proceeds from the sale to Chatham Hall. Your gift is valued when received in the Chatham Hall account based on the mean of the high and low market price on the date Chatham Hall takes ownership of the stock.
  • Gifts-in-Kind

    Gifts-in-kind must be accepted with prior approval. Chatham Hall will provide a letter of acknowledgement describing your gift, but cannot assign a value to the gift. Chatham Hall will receive gifts of horses that further the goals of the Riding Program. These gifts must be approved by the director of the program.

    We recommend that you consult your tax advisor for valuation advice. Donors seeking tax deductions for gifts valued in excess of $5,000 must obtain an independent appraisal at the time the gift is given to Chatham Hall. The donor is responsible for all costs related to this appraisal. For more information, contact the Office of Advancement at 434.432.5600.
