Chapman University Endowment Council

The Endowment Council is a dedicated group of professionals within the community who serve as advocates for Chapman University. Most members work as estate and tax attorneys, certified public accountants, trust officers, financial advisors and wealth managers. Whenever appropriate, they share news about the university with their clients and colleagues. In doing so, they open doors that will help the university to meet the financial goals necessary to grow its endowment and achieve its ambitious goals.

Members of the Endowment Council attend three informative breakfast programs each year that provide insight on timely topics as shared by some of Chapman University's premier faculty members and senior administrators. These programs are an outstanding opportunity to make personal connections with many of the top professionals within Southern California. Members are also invited to select special events throughout the year as a thank you for their active advocacy.

There are no dues or giving expectations associated with serving on the Endowment Council, but we do ask for regular attendance at all three of the annual meetings. At Chapman University, we view relationships with our allied-professionals to be of crucial importance. We hope members of the Endowment Council will help us to expand on our current efforts, provide us with new ideas and establish more advocates in the community. Working together, we can do great things for the university and provide your clients with a meaningful philanthropic legacy.
