Ways To Give

Chinquapin Gala Auction

Why Give?

Your contribution allows our students to receive a rigorous, well-rounded school experience that also challenges them to “pay it forward.” With your help, they will become responsible, educated citizens who are positive role models and leaders in their communities. Your gift to Chinquapin Preparatory School not only allows students to receive a superior education, but will inspire them to continue to change the lives of others.

  • Each accepted student is offered a scholarship that covers tuition, transportation and meals.
  • Parents pay a nominal tuition that covers three percent of the annual cost of educating a child.
  • Chinquapin Prep offers a full boarding program for boys in grades 7–12. Students are not charged extra for boarding.

Retail Donation Programs

Kroger “Neighbor to Neighbor” Donation Program

Kroger's Neighbor to Neighbor Program is a great way for nonprofit organizations to raise money. It allows churches, schools (K-12), or any 501 (c)(3) charitable organizations the opportunity to earn a portion of $1 million that is donated annually. Simply present a copy of the barcode below to your cashier upon checkout.  After they have scanned your KrogerPlus Card you will be enrolled for the current year of the Kroger Neighbor to Neighbor Donation Program and a percentage of your eligible purchases will be donated to Chinquapin. 

You can scan the barcode above with the KeyRing App available on iOS and Android and have it stored on your smartphone. Simply have the cashier scan the barcode from your phone upon checkout.

Third-Party Donation Web Sites

The Greater Houston Community Foundation profiles participating non-profit organizations.  Check out Chinquapin's profile at their website:  www.ghcf.org.  Just click View Nonprofit Profiles, type "Chinquapin" in the Organization Name field, and click the Search button.  From here you can view our profile or make a credit card donation to the school.  The Special Instructions section of the Credit Card donation form allows you to specify which fund you would like your gift to go to (Operating, Capital, Endowment, etc.) or whether you would like to make your gift an honorarium or memorial.

Donate Goods or Services/In-Kind Contributions

We receive many gifts-in-kind throughout the year from individuals, corporations, and service organizations. If you would like to donate fairly new computer equipment, professional services, or other goods you deem beneficial to our program please contact Marilu Garza at (281) 426-5467.



Not all gifts come in the form of cash or goods. Some of the greatest gifts come in the form of volunteerism. If you would like to help coach, participate in a fundraiser, or help the school in some other fashion, please contact Marilu Garza at (281) 426-5467.


We'd like to give thanks to all of our supporters, big and small, for helping Chinquapin Preparatory School continue its mission of providing a challenging, college-preparatory education to able and motivated youth from low-income families in the Greater Houston area.


All donations are tax-deductible. Donate Now and MAKE A DIFFERENCE.
