Choose to invest. Choose to make a difference. Choose faith in the future.

Chowan has experienced a true renaissance over the past decade and it’s all thanks to the generosity and support of our alumni and friends. These gifts, no matter the size, are incredibly powerful both collectively and individually. Your gifts transform – the lives of students, the face of the campus, and even our ability to shape the world.

When you have faith in Chowan, it only makes sense to join in. There are many ways to partner with us in creating an even brighter future. Whatever your interests, there is a way to connect your passion with the needs of our students, campus, or community. We invite you to explore the many opportunities to make a gift and spread the spirit of Chowan.

Why I Give

Because I have faith in the future of Chowan University and its students

Because Chowan University students deserve the best education, experiences and opportunities

Because my gift will combine with thousands of others to make an immeasurable difference

Because someone at Chowan believed in me once, and it helped me learn to believe in myself

Because my gift can help make a great University even better

Because we all benefit from thoughtful, values-driven, well-educated citizens

Because there is a tradition that each succeeding generation turns around and helps the one behind it; I benefited from that tradition, even in ways I didn’t know at the time. Now, it's my turn to give back.
