Thank you for your donation to Chase Collegiate School.
Chase gratefully recognizes the generous philanthropy of alumni, parents, faculty and friends who help to preserve the School's tradition of academic excellence through their support of Cornerstone Campaign Two and our Annual Giving program. Since our founding in 1865, gifts to the School have provided for new buildings, many endowed scholarship funds, faculty salaries', and have sustained the School's educational program. Donations - and the donors who give them - empower us to propel Chase toward even greater accomplishments so that we remain a strong and vital institution.
We invite you to become a partner in leading Chase to the forefront of independent education.
