Donate Dear Community Members,
Our 70th Anniversary has been a year of significant accomplishment for the Chestnut Hill Community Association due in large part to the support of donors like you. We would not be successful without the many people who contribute to the CHCA and those who volunteer their time and talents to this valuable community resource.
On behalf of the CHCA Board and all who benefit from the strong, vibrant community that is Chestnut Hill we sincerely appreciate your financial assistance and ask for your continued support.
Why give to the Annual Appeal?
Our annual fund drive supports many of the initiatives,activities and programs that make Chestnut Hill a special place. A 501c 3 organization, the CHCA serves as a public forum for residents and stakeholders of Chestnut Hill. The Association has three major focus areas: Service, Advocacy, and Community.
The CHCA serves as a guardian of the community. It is an important conduit for connecting our past heritage with future possibilities and opportunities. In today’s world organizations like the CHCA can’t sustain themselves simply by membership fees. The Annual Appeal supports the work of various volunteer committees focused on zoning and variance concerns, strategic partnerships with city leaders and improving and maintaining our neighborhood parks and gardens. This work is more important now than ever!
The CHCA also sponsors many events and programs to promote a sense of community including the Holiday Circle of Trees, Pastorius Park Free Summer Concert Series, Friday Night Movies, Parades and the Hoops Madness Basketball Tournament. These events encourage face to face interaction among neighbors which encourages communication and a sense of community spirit.
Throughout the year the CHCA also joins the Business District, The Conservancy, Woodmere Museum and large employers such as Chestnut Hill Hospital and Chestnut Hill College in collaborative efforts that benefit residents and visitors.
All this is accomplished with a small staff, volunteers and a limited budget. Your contribution will help us to maintain, expand and improve our existing programs and services.
We are confident that with your generous support we can achieve our ambitious Annual Appeal goal of $100,000 which will help to ensure Chestnut Hill remains one of the best neighborhoods anywhere! All donations are tax deductible. The Annual Appeal is underway now until March 31st.

Chestnut Hill Community Association Annual Appeal supports: Pastorius Park Concerts
Ah, summertime! Together with neighbors and friends we will soon be bringing our picnic dinners to Pastorius Park’s natural open-air amphitheater to enjoy a wonderful evening of high quality, professional music. Our concert series is celebrating it’s 70th year, and your support makes it possible!
Chestnut Hill Community Association Annual Appeal supports: Chestnut Hill Fire House
In Chestnut Hill, we love our old buildings, but what to do when a classic building can no longer function as it was intended? This was the problem presented to Chestnut Hill in 2015 by the Philadelphia Fire Department. With changing technology, and larger fire trucks, our beloved Fire House was no longer viable. Thanks to the committed efforts of our Physical Division volunteers and partners, the Fire Department heard our concerns about losing this historic building and agreed that, rather than replacing it, they could add to it in a way that allows Chestnut Hill to stay safe and keep its beloved Fire House. The CHCA invested an enormous amount of time and effort, working with many excellent representatives of the Philadelphia Fire Department and the Chestnut Hill Conservancy, to arrive at an outstanding solution that will carry through to the 21st century. Challenges like this are exactly why the CHCA exists. Your support helps us make this important work possible
