Month of Giving
Hello CHA Community! The auction is a time-honored tradition that brings together the entire Chestnut Hill Academy community, to celebrate and raise the much-needed funds that enhance our educational and enrichment programs. Through generous support from our CHA community, the money raised at last year’s auction helped provide funds for many initiatives during the 2020-2021 school year, such as new Math and Language Arts Curriculums, Annual Book Refresh for the Library, Grade Level Socials, Community Building Events, Continuing Teacher Education, Classroom Improvements, and Technological Investments. In addition to the initiatives funded this year, CHAPTER routinely invests in technology resources and upgrades, music and literary enrichment events, winter ski program, school field trips, playground upgrades, advanced teacher training, and much more! As with most events this year, we have had to shift our mindset and reimagine our annual auction. This year, Chestnut Hill Academy and CHAPTER are pleased to announce a month-long fundraising campaign that will include a small online auction, showcasing the beloved classroom art projects. Your support is needed more than ever, as we continue to navigate these uncertain times. We rely on generous donors, like you, to support CHAPTER’s mission and help CHA provide the best educational experience for our children. Proceeds from the online auction and the Month of Giving will be used to support CHAPTER’s mission: • Enrich Education – To provide activities, materials or equipment that enrich the academic experience of our children, beyond what is provided by an elite school education. Also, to fund special academic initiatives that emphasize and strengthen specific areas, such as Science, Math, etc. as a supplement to the curriculum provided by our school. • Promote Child Development – To provide activities and materials that promote the emotional, physical, social, and cultural development of our children, beyond what is provided by an elite school education. • Build Community – To promote a strong culture that bonds families, faculty, and staff; and by supporting the external community through volunteer activities and community outreach programs.
