Ways of Giving to Chatfield College:

June 27, 2016

IMG_1985If you are like me,  you are receiving solicitations from several non-profit  organizations daily.  I have gone so far as to sort my mail by the recycling bin.   I wanted to let you know of several  ways that you can support our students at Chatfield College through your daily purchases.

Chatfield College  participates in the Kroger Community Rewards Program. Last Quarter (February through April)  19 households supported Chatfield College through the Kroger Community Rewards Program bringing a total donation back to Chatfield College of $141.  That is an average gift of $7.42 per household.  If we multiple this by four that is an annual gift of $29 per household.  If you have not done so already please consider joining this program and making Chatfield your charity of choice.

There is no cost to you to join and it is very easy.  Just follow these three simple steps:

  1. Kroger Community Rewards:
  2. 1. Visit krogercommunityrewards.com
  3. 2. Sign in to your online account or create a new account. You can do this with your alternate ID (your phone number) if you do not have your card with you.
  4. 3. Find and select Chatfield as your organization and click enroll.

Please note that you have to renew your choice annually in April, and your fuel points or other discounts will not be adversely affected.

Amazon Smile:
We have the same opportunity with  Amazon.  If you shop at Amazon,  please consider making Chatfield College your charity of choice.  Follow the easy instructions below.

  1. 1. Go to www.smile.amazon.com and sign in or create an account.
  2. 2. Choose Chatfield College as your charity of choice.
  3. 3. Purchase items from Amazon and Chatfield College receives .05% of every purchase.

In addition to these immediate rewards, you have the option of making an annual or planned gift to our students.  Annual gifts are always appreciated and go to support the immediate financial needs of our students. You also have the option to contribute to one of our 28 endowed scholarships.

Planned gifts or estate gifts are used to help finance long term projects.  Please note that you do not have to be a millionaire to make a huge difference in the lives of our students with a planned gift.  Another simple way to donate to Chatfield is to include the college in your estate plans and announcements. This can go a long way to helping our students break the cycle of generational poverty through education .  For more information about planned  giving  please contact Jim Ludwig  james.ludwig@chatfield.edu and I will be more than happy to meet with you on an individual basis.

Visit our “Give” page to find an option that best fits you.

Thank you for all that you do to help better the lives of our students and their families.
