Your gifts make a difference.
Catholic Campus Ministry at William & Mary relies on the generosity of parents, alumni, students, and friends to fund our program. You provide the financial support that allows us to provide the support, love, and structure that students need to discover, grow, and live their faith as Catholic adults.
We invite you to prayerfully consider partnering with us in the mission of sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ with the students and community of William & Mary through a pledge, online monthly contribution, or a one-time gift. All donations are tax-deductible, and you will receive a year-end letter acknowledging your contributions for the year.
"We can't imagine having sent our son to college without knowing that CCM would be there to walk with him every step of the way. We are so grateful for CCM!"
- Tom & Anne, Parents of a Former Student
Why I Give
"I give to CCM because CCM gave me a home and a family while I was in college. I see it as a way to give thanks to the ministry as well as thanks to God for the resources he has given me. I believe that CCM continues to be a powerful force for good at William & Mary and a source of grace for its students."
Annual Fund or Endowment?Gifts made to Catholic Campus Ministry may be designated to the Annual Fund or to the Endowment for Catholic Campus Ministry. The Annual Fund provides for ongoing staffing, facilities, and program expenses of Campus Ministry. The Endowment for Catholic Campus Ministry is an investment fund, held by the William & Mary Foundation, which provides interest income that funds certain CCM programs.
Living Faith SocietyAn electronic monthly donation drafted from your checking account or debit/credit card allows you to budget a donation over time, and provides a stable funding base for CCM. As a token of gratitude, members of the Living Faith Society receive various resources for daily use and spiritual growth. JOIN THE LIVING FAITH SOCIETY
