A Message From Our President, Chantelle Fitzgerald 

Hello and welcome to The Cheyney Foundation. We are thrilled that you came to visit us and we invite you to explore our website to learn more about our work and how together we can continue to support the students, faculty, and institution of Cheyney University. I am proud to serve as the President of the Foundation.

We are proud of the many accomplishments that we have had over the years and here are just a few of our highlights:

  • Awarded over $300,000 in scholarships to the students of Cheyney University
  • Invested in the only Aquaponics department in the state to inspire and encourage students to study urban farming
  • Provided equipment and materials to the Fine Arts, Design and Liberal Studies (FADLS) Department to support student creative expression

Cheyney University is the first Historically Black College in the nation and I am proud to serve as the President of the Foundation.

In order to continue to support the University, we invite all of our stakeholders and future stakeholders to be a part of the incredible history and academic enrichment of Cheyney University. We encourage your partnership, in order to create long-term sustainable programs, and partnerships for our students and for future generations.

Thank you for your time, interest and potential partnership with The Cheyney Foundation. Together, we can bring transformative change and impact not only to Pennsylvania, to the nation and world at large.

Why You Should Help!

  • When it comes to long-term-investing, we believe nothing provides more of a return than a solid, sustained investment in educating and cultivating the mind.
  • As the cost of education rises however, and the level of public support decreases, the educational equation becomes out of balance.
  • A downward trend towards a less educated society tips the scales towards inequality, dependency, poverty and crime.
  • We simply ask that all those who understand the mathematics of education, continue to invest in education for the long-term.
  • A positive return on investment in education means a future labor force that produces in multiples beyond that which was invested and later produces families that will reproduce even greater fruit.
