I’M IN! Campaign Celebrates Staff and Faculty Giving Now Through Dec. 3

Nicole Michel ’12,”I believe that giving is the most fulfilling experience a person can have. I want to give back to Chapman and its students all of the wealth it has given me.”

Nov. 1 marked the start of I’M IN! Faculty-Staff Giving Campaign. I’M IN! is a faculty and staff giving campaign that encourages Chapman employees to make a donation of any amount to any area of campus they are passionate about.

This month through Dec. 3, the I’M IN! Committee will share both the impact of and reasons behind faculty and staff giving.

Last year almost 600 staff and faculty participated in the campaign. Through this campaign, over 120 different areas of campus were positively impacted, from the Center for American War Letters to the Humanomics Program to the Art Collection Education Fund and beyond.  

“Coming together as a community to support Chapman through giving has a significant collective impact. Your gift says you believe in Chapman’s mission and want to be a part of Chapman’s future,” says Deanna Blanchet, assistant director of the Chapman Fund. “Through your dedication to your role at Chapman and your generosity, you are sending a powerful and inspiring message to our students and our fellow Chapman Family members. It’s important to give to organizations that are doing good work, and Chapman is no exception.”

It’s important to give to organizations that are doing good work, and Chapman is no exception.

In celebration of this year’s I’M IN! campaign, President Struppa and senior administrators Harold Hewitt, Sheryl Bourgeois, and Glenn Pfeiffer have generously agreed to match every dollar donated with their own gift to the University, up to $50,000.

Throughout the month, the I’M IN! campaign will share pictures and testimonials from staff and faculty across campus about what Chapman means to them and why they have decided to give. Faculty and staff are all invited to share what inspires them to give to Chapman as well as their picture for inclusion on the I’M IN! website by email submission.
