Charitable giving is the foundation of Christian education, because charity in the fuller sense is the beginning and end of Christian teaching and the Christian life. A Christian academic institution can neither start nor continue without charitable giving. This giving could include financial endowments or giving nonliquid assets which could assist the college in acquiring resources to build. We ask that you prayerfully consider charitably giving to Chesterton College. Donors can make one-time contributions or monthly contributions. And because Chesterton College is a not-for-profit academic institution, your donation is tax-deductible. Below are several endowment programs we'd like for you to consider. What do you want to see thrive at Chesterton College, in Baton Rouge, in Louisiana, and in the Christian Church?
