A Community of Champions. That’s what we are at Christopher Newport.

Our Captains are champions in the classroom, on the court and field, on the stage, in the art studio, in service of people throughout Hampton Roads and around the world. They embrace honor, service, leadership, and scholarship. And they will lead lives of significance.

Captains can be champions because they, too, have champions.


When you support scholarships, endowed professorships, athletics, the arts, or study abroad, you help us ensure that every student has amazing opportunities and that financial need is not a barrier to a life of significance.

When you choose to offer money with no strings attached — unrestricted — you make the most powerful statement about your trust in this University to make the right choices at the right time, whether it is responding to a crisis or seizing a new opportunity.

Give to what inspires you, to what you love. No matter how you choose to direct your support, you are becoming our partner in ensuring we are anchored in excellence.
