Caritas Society of St. John’s College, Annapolis will join other Anne Arundel County nonprofit organizations in the Great Give, 7 p.m. on May 15 through 7 p.m. on May 16. The Great Give is Anne Arundel County’s first 24-hour online fundraising event created to rally the community in support of local charitable causes. The Community Foundation of Anna Arundel County has organized this event.
The Caritas Society of St. John’s College, Annapolis, Maryland, is a non-profit membership organization. More than 200 people from the Annapolis community and the college belong to Caritas. Members enjoy many opportunities to share their interests. They connect with a variety of friends who support St. John’s and its distinctive liberal arts program. Membership is open to everyone interested in the activities of the Caritas Society.
Caritas has two purposes: 1) to support the St. John’s Program by providing need-based financial aid to students; 2) to promote enduring relationships between St. John’s and the larger Annapolis community
The Caritas Society accomplishes its first purpose by awarding eight to ten financial aid grants each year to students whose college expenses are greater than their financial resources and are in need of additional funding in order to remain at the college. Caritas supports St. John’s in other ways, too. Examples of special initiatives include:
The Caritas Society accomplishes its second purpose by presenting social gatherings, instructive and entertaining presentations, and special events. Members are encouraged to learn about St. Johns and to take advantage of its many educational and cultural opportunities.
Monthly meetings feature speakers on a wide range of topics, as well as musical and dramatic performances. Caritas also hosts fundraising events that are open to the public. Examples are the popular Meet the Authors program, which brings nationally known writers to the St. Johns campus each fall, and a much-anticipated, light-hearted theatrical presentation in the early spring.
The Caritas Society does all of this and more. Tell your friends about us!
