Join the Legacy Society

Chowan's future is full of abundant promise. With planned giving, your legacy begins today.

At Chowan, we prepare students of promise for tomorrow, with faith that this is where their future begins. Through planned giving, you can help ensure that each future is filled with abundant possibilities.

For generations, the tree-lined walk through Squirrel Park to McDowell Columns Hall has ushered Chowan students into a brighter future. Those trees stand as an enduring symbol of the strength of a Chowan University education. The graceful boughs which have offered protection to countless students represent endurance, growth, and achievement beyond expectation. Like the roots of a strong tree --hidden, yet sustaining -- legacy giving is Chowan’s greatest hope for a long and fruitful future. The next generation of trees was recently planted to safeguard future Chowan students and ensure there will always be a generous covering as a legacy for tomorrow. 

We are here to help you plant seedlings that will allow your legacy to do the same. Avenues like gift and estate planning enable you to cultivate a philanthropic vision defined by your unique passions and values. Together, our future is full of abundant promise. Begin your legacy today!
