together we soar
Every day at Chowan is an opportunity for students to thrive. We believe there’s no limit to how far they can climb and no measure for how far they can fly. At Chowan, each student’s education is personalized—but they’re never on their own. Will you join us in preparing the next generation of students soar to new heights?
Your Alumni Association is comprised of over 15,000 members. Some of Chowan’s alumni may have an associate’s degree while others have a bachelor’s degree or a terminal degree (Masters). This massive membership is a network of professional contacts who all have the same background – Chowan. This is your opportunity to build long-term relationships through a variety of programs and services, the Alumni Association works with alumni around the world to ensure you carry Chowan pride wherever you go. As a graduate of Chowan, we want to hear how you are making an impact in your community and in your part of the world.
Invest in Chowan
The heart of Chowan is to provide our students an exceptional Christian education—a mission that would not be possible without the help of our generous donors. When you give to Chowan, you’re creating a lifetime of possibility for students.
However you choose to give, you’ll make a difference. Options include giving to a specific cause, establish a scholarship in honor or memoriam of a loved one, give outright to the Chowan Fund, set up planned giving, and more. Our Advancement team is happy to talk with you anytime to create a plan that works best for you.
Major Gifts and Planned Giving
