Elon CCM Annual Fund
The Elon CCM Annual Fund forms the foundation of Catholic Campus Ministry's fund-raising efforts each year and provides the backbone to fulfill our mission. We rely upon the generosity and joyful giving of parents, students, alumni and friends who believe, in their hearts, the purpose of our ministry: to nourish the faith of our Catholic students while nurturing and developing them to become strong, responsible leaders of society and the Church.
Many people are surprised to find out that Catholic Campus Ministry receives very little funds from Elon University itself (only 3% of our annual operating budget). And unlike parishes that have weekly income from collections, our congregation is comprised of students with limited ability to give at this time in their lives. Donations to our Annual Fund help to ensure that Catholic Campus Ministry will be able to continue to provide Mass and programming for our Catholic students, and to reach out to more students, more effectively.
What Difference Can My Gift Make?
Plenty. All gifts, no matter how big or small, benefit our students. Catholic Campus Ministry appreciates any support that can be given.
How Does My Gift Help?
Gifts to the Elon CCM Annual Fund go to work immediately in the areas where they're needed the most:
- student leadership training
- alternative fall and spring break service trips
- student spiritual retreats
- study materials for small groups and RCIA classes
- funding for guest speakers
- outreach events and materials
- candles, hymnals and other aids for worship
- salaries for ministry staff
What About Alumni Participation?
Strong alumni participation in giving back to the university is a valuable measure of Elon pride. Elon Catholic Campus Ministry is partnering with the university to help raise our alumni participation rate. All gifts to the Elon CCM Annual Fund will be processed through the Office of University Advancement as a gift to Elon University. Your tax receipt will be sent by the Advancement Office, and all funds will be stored in an official Elon account.
