How can I help?

Financial donations of all sizes are always appreciated. Friends of Chapman funds pay for enrichment programs, reading support, school supplies, staffing support and more.

The Chapman PTA (93-1009176) and the Chapman Educational Foundation (93-1121953) are both 501(c)3 non-profit organizations.

While we are happy to accept checks in the office at any time, you may also consider giving in the following ways:

Monthly Giving or One-Time Donations

Many families add a monthly donation to their budget. You can also make a one-time donation.

Corporate Matching: Maximize your contribution

Before you write a check or sign up for a monthly donation, see if your employer will match your donation. Many companies in the Portland area, including Nike, Kaiser, Genentech and Intel, will match your donation 1:1. Some companies even offer this benefit to spouses and retirees.
