Investment Opportunities

If you have interest in supporting CHBS with financial investment, we have several ways which may match your intentions: through our Annual Gifts campaign (e.g., Giving Day), planned gifts such as an endowment, strategic gifts which help support our CHBS priorities, and corporate gifts which enables companies to support philanthropic causes.  All of these options ultimately help support students through scholarships, enhanced academic programming, or faculty research.

Dean's Innovation Development Fund

Gifts to the Dean’s Innovation Fund support important, leading-edge programs and coursework that need special funding and can’t happen otherwise — mainly because federal funding and other grants follow a decision cycle that’s too slow to keep pace with the constant, rapid changes in the field of health and wellness. When you invest in the Innovation Fund, you help CHBS stay on top of what’s happening today so our students can continue Being the Change tomorrow.

College of Health and Behavioral Studies

Contributions to this fund will contribute to the advancement of the mission of the college, allowing us to foster the engagement of students, faculty and communities in learning, scholarship and service in health and behavioral studies.

Faculty Excellence Fund

Your gifts will allow us to support faculty in the development of new teaching and learning strategies, implementation of collaborative and interprofessional activities, and professional development that enhances their effectiveness in classroom, laboratory and field settings.

Challace J. McMillin Center for Sports Psychology

Your contribution will support students and sport psychology professionals at James Madison University who offer programs to help athletes, coaches, and parents of athletes achieve their sport- and life-related goals.
