Chatfield College's Building Community Capital Campaign chaired by Heekin and Keesee

June 17th, 2013 Chatfield College\

Two Cincinnati natives and supporters of both the Ursuline Sisters and Chatfield College have stepped into leadership roles as Co-Chairs of Chatfield’s recently announced capital campaign. Shannon Garry Keesee (Hyde Park) and Kip Heekin (Indian Hill) will chair the $5 million dollar Building Community campaign, and look forward to “building on the momentum created during the silent phase,” shared Heekin. Approximately $2 million dollars were raised during the silent phase of the capital campaign.

The $5 million capital campaign will increase the existing endowment for student scholarships, advance renovations on the college’s historic St. Martin campus in Brown County, and support the renovation of 1544 Central Parkway in Over-the-Rhine, the recently purchased 18,000 square foot building that will provide a permanent, downtown campus for Chatfield College.

“The growth of Chatfield’s downtown campus is fantastic. I wish we would have moved to Over-the-Rhine sooner; it is such a natural extension of the school’s mission,” stated Heekin.

“I am honored to help ensure that underserved students have access to an affordable, Catholic, liberal arts education. I have always appreciated and admired the educational mission and community-based services the Ursulines provide in rural and urban settings. They are committed to doing great works and changing lives through the power of education. I am committed to helping with that,” said Keesee.

Chatfield College is a private, Catholic, liberal arts college with campuses in downtown Cincinnati and Brown County. The school primarily serves non-traditional students working towards their Associates Degrees, with the aim of matriculating into a Bachelor’s Degree program following graduation.
