About Baiada Scholarship Challenge


The Baiada Scholarship Challenge has been extended!

Great News! We have surpassed our $100,000 goal for Baiada Scholarship Challenge in three weeks and the funds raised will directly support much-needed student scholarships. For those of you who have helped get us to this incredible milestone, we thank you for your generosity.

Our Gala honorees, Ann and Mark Baiada, have generously provided an additional $40,000 to extend the Baiada Scholarship Challenge! Our goal is meet the match by the time of the 12th Annual Virtual Scholarship Gala on Thursday, May 13 at 7:00 pm ET. 

The Challenge, which started on April 15, will culminate with a one-hour Virtual Gala on Thursday, May 13 featuring our honorees, Ann and Mark Baiada. This special event will be free to join and is certain to be a night to remember!

The funds raised through the Scholarship Gala are especially important to Chestnut Hill College, as this event is the largest fundraiser for scholarships. Your support will make an immediate impact, as the financial assistance required by our students continues to increase. Don’t wait! Join us today by connecting with your friends and supporting the Baiada Scholarship Challenge.
