Thank you for helping to meet the President’s challenge!

How important is the endowment created by Dean Hugh and Lynnette Bonner to provide help for CHP students in crisis?
Just ask the Medical Imaging student whose home burned to the ground.

Or the Physician Assistant student going out on clinical who was the victim of a rental scam.

Across all the CHP programs, Dean Bonner’s emergency fund has been a lifeline for students who suddenly found themselves in an urgent situation. When Dr. Bonner retired, he and his wife Lynnette worked to secure the future for tomorrow’s students with an endowed fund.

Upstate interim president Dr. Gregory Eastwood issued a challenge that the Office of the President would match up to $5,000 in gifts to Dean Bonner's endowment from CHP alumni.  We are pleased to report that with your help, we have met the challenge! Thank you!

You may still throw a lifeline to future students in crisis with your gift today. Be sure to select Dean Bonner's fund from the "Designation" dropdown menu.
