"As an alumna as well as a 40-year employee, now retired, I have believed in the Champlain philosophy for decades.  I have seen the College grow from its early years as a junior college to now offering Bachelors and Masters degrees!  Champlain provided financial aid for me as I was the first person in my family to attend college.  I believe in paying it forward, so every year for 40 years I have donated to the scholarship fund for first-generation college students.  I am truly proud to be connected with my alma mater.  How great for Champlain to continue to work toward its 2020 Plan to be the 'finest small, professionally and globally focused college in the United States.'  I think it has already met that goal!"

"I am regularly reminded that Champlain College is what helped provide me with a stable launching pad to grow into my career. I feel thankful for the grants and scholarships I received while building my foundation, and I hope to share the importance of continuing a pay-it-forward perspective with fellow Alumni and future students of Champlain College."

"When I think about the reason I give to Champlain every year, I realize it has to do with two main factors. First and foremost being the education I received. Champlain's career focused curriculum and dedicated professors really prepared me to instantly put to use the skills I learned in all of my classes to my full-time job and helped me advance quickly in my career. The second is how welcome and part of the Champlain community I instantly felt. From the President to the professors and the day-to-day staff of the college, I felt like I was someone that mattered to them and that they wanted me to succeed. Finding that in a college I feel is so unique and something I want every student to experience. I know my gift to Champlain gives other students the opportunity to get more financial aid, allows the college the ability to provide better programs, and gives the school the means to provide the students with the most state of the art facilities on campus. Without my support and the support of every donor things like this wouldn't be possible for Champlain."
