Big dreams start with small gifts!
Chesapeake College is committed to the success of our students. Our faculty, staff and administration work together as a community to create an environment in which learning flourishes.
Supporting Chesapeake College during the BIG GIVE will assist our students in the following areas:
- Athletics: Our student athletes represent Chesapeake through excellence in sports and academics.
- Honors Program: This program provides excellent and adventurous teaching and learning experiences at Chesapeake.
- SGA - Alternative Spring Break: Help our students help others as the travel to New Orleans for Spring Break to continue with the rebuilding efforts there.
- Phi Theta Kappa: Support student members of this international honors society, who are recognized for academic excellence.
- General Scholarship Fund: Many students need scholarship support now more than ever before.
Why should YOU support Chesapeake College during the BIG GIVE?
- 50% of Maryland's undergraduate students are enrolled in Maryland's 16 community colleges, with more than 500,000 students educated and trained by community colleges.
- More than 50% of the students in our five-county region who go on to college come to Chesapeake College.
- 94% of the students who attend community colleges are Marylanders who choose to stay in Maryland after receiving their degree.
- For every tax dollar spent on community colleges, taxpayers get $2 back in higher tax revenues.
- Community colleges continue to be less than half the cost of tuition at one of Maryland’s four-year public colleges or universities and one-eighth the cost of a private institution.
Your gift, regardless of the size, will transform the life of a Chesapeake student by providing lifelong learning opportunities to meet the educational, employment and enrichment needs of our community.
So, please make a gift. Help our student athletes succeed on the field and in the classroom. Encourage our student leaders in their service learning projects. Acknowledge the academic excellence of our top scholars.
Your gift, no matter the size, makes a difference!
