What is the Cheyney 180 Challenge?

Last year, about 75% of the student population came from low income families, making paying for college, a burden, and often a deterrent for returning to school year after year.  At the Cheyney Foundation, we are striving to eliminate the financial gap that derails so many enthusiastic students from reaching their academic and professional goals.  

The Cheyney Foundation is a 501 (c) (3) tax exempt organization and we have supported Cheyney University of Pennsylvania for the past 45 years. We are committed to increasing  awareness, creating innovative partnerships and fundraising for the university, but we can not do it on our own. Cheyney University is a historical treasure, the institution and its students need YOUR help now more than ever.

We established the Cheyney 180 Challenge to help raise money for student scholarships and we are taking in donations of $18, $180, $1800 or more in honor of Cheyney University’s 180 Anniversary. However, all amounts big or small, are appreciated and will make a difference in a student’s life.
