David Moore moved to the office of Legacy Planning in 2008 after previously serving nearly five years as Director of Alumni and Parent Relations. Prior to his promotion, he completed a series of specialized classes on planned giving techniques and the corresponding examinations in an intensive program offered through the American Institute for Philanthropic Studies expanding his 22 years of fund raising experience in higher education. Additionally, David earned a master's degree in organizational leadership and a graduate certificate in organizational development through Chapman University in 2009.

Enhanced by his in-depth knowledge of the university, David helps friends of Chapman to leave their legacy and make an investment in the future through estate planning tools such as bequests, charitable gift annuities, charitable remainder trusts, gifts of property, and charitable lead trusts. He also oversees the Charles C. Chapman Heritage Society, which recognizes and honors those who have made a planned gift.

David especially enjoys sharing the Chapman University campus with others, so let him know if you would like a campus tour.

Lindsey Jacobs joined the Legacy Planning team in April 2014. She graduated with a bachelor's degree in theatre from Chapman in 2009 and has a strong background in operations and stewardship. Because Lindsey loved her experience as a student at Chapman, she was inspired to return and work to help Chapman Family members create their Chapman legacy. Lindsey works closely with the Charles C. Chapman Heritage Society. She loves meeting and reconnecting with fellow Chapman supporters and would love to hear your Chapman Story.

Bethany Smith joined the Legacy Planning team in 2016. She likes to say she "married into Chapman" after starting her position shortly after marrying a graduate of the University. Bethany assists both David Moore and Lindsey Jacobs with stewardship and event planning for the Charles C. Chapman Heritage Society and the Chapman University Endowment Council. She would love to know what makes you feel most celebrated being a member of the Chapman Family.
