We are working hard at Chowan University to meet the needs of our students not only now during this unprecedented time but throughout the year. Through generous gifts to the Chowan Fund, donors are investing in our greatest needs, directly impacting the lives of our students, and helping Chowan University bloom for years to come.
The goal for this year's Chowan Fund is $140,000 and through the many donations this year, and as of May 1st, we are only $30,000 away from meeting our goal by May 31st, which is remarkable given the circumstances in recent months.
The GivingTuesday foundation "believes that generosity has the power to unite and heal communities in good times and bad. A global threat like COVID-19 affects more than just the infected. A pandemic like this touches every person on the planet, and it presents an opportunity to come together as a global community."
We know that the Chowan community has been affected by this pandemic. We also know the enormous generosity of our community and the ability to come together through good times and bad. Because of these unprecedented times, we are taking unprecedented measures to ensure that Chowan University continues to bloom!
