You have the power to make a direct impact on these projects.  With your support, these campaigns can raise their goal.


Directly support that project by making a gift

Your gift will go directly to the program overseeing the project, who will then fund the project with your gift.  Should the project be overfunded, your gifts may be used for the project or related projects within the program.  Please read the FAQ's below to learn more about funding policies.


Make an optional gift to Student Scholarships

When you make a gift, you will be invited to support Champlain College's Support A Student Scholarship Fund .  Support-A-Student scholarships are often the deciding factor in whether or not a student is able to pursue his or her educational goals.  This vital program helps fill the gap for students who have exhausted all other financial resources, including federal and state education loans, family contributions, and jobs. 


Share the projects you support on social media

Continue to help each project you support by sharing it with your friends and family on social networks.  This helps increase the project's chances of successfully reaching its goal.
