An initiative of the Campbell Hall Black Alumni Collective (CHBAC), the CHBAC Endowment Fund was created to assist Black students with non-tuition, “auxiliary” expenses related to their Campbell Hall education. We cannot ignore the fact that socio-economic forces play a role in a student’s sense of connection to the overall school community. The cost of many activities such as trips, dances, uniforms, bus transportation, athletic spirit packs, technology, and school supplies, creates an even wider social gap that already exists in independent schools. The CHBAC wants to be sure that our Black students are not marginalized due to their financial situation. This new endowment fund will help ensure that Black students are able to access the full Campbell Hall experience.
