Chowan Fund: Faith in Chowan's Future

Your gift to the Chowan Fund supports our greatest needs and helps Chowan University bloom.

The Chowan Fund helps Chowan University bloom.

Why call it the Chowan Fund?

Because this fund directly impacts the growth of the Chowan community, which includes students, faculty, staff, and friends like you. To better represent this immediate relationship, a new name was in order. The Chowan Fund supports the heart and soul of the university, enabling us to better facilitate “Faith in Your Future” for our students.

Why use the Southern Magnolia?

Because the Southern Magnolia represents hospitality and family. Its roots are deep and nourishing, like the rich history of Chowan University. Its flowers are fragrant and blooming, just as the University continues to blossom and grow. Chowan’s fiscal year runs from June 1 to May 31.

What difference does my gift make?

Plenty. No matter the size, your gift to the Chowan Fund combined with many others supports Chowan’s greatest needs and shapes many successful stories on campus through the followings:

  • Program operating funds
  • Technology upgrades
