Giving to the BCM Alumni association at william and mary


Thank you for considering joining us in financial support of our organization, in our mission and ministry supporting Baptist work and fellowship at William and Mary and among alumni.   General donations are undesignated and will be used to further the mission of the organization in a variety of ways.  You may also choose to designate all or some of your gift to the endowment fund, a more restricted fund.  (For more information on giving to the endowment fund or for any other questions, feel free to send us a message through the form on the "contact us" page.)

Other ways to give

Of course, you may still send in an old-fashioned check as always, written out to "BCM Alumni Association at Willam and Mary" (or simply, "BCMAAWM") and sent to Treasurer, 6829 Elkhardt Rd.,

North Chesterfield, VA 23225.  

You may also contact the treasurer at the address above (or by e-mail using the "Contact" page link above) if you are interested in donating stock or in estate planning, or donating to the endowment.  We are able to accept those types of donations, and we would be glad to walk you through the process. 

Amazon Smile:

If you shop at Amazon, you may also benefit the Association without extra cost to yourself!  They have a program called "Amazon Smile," where they give 0.5% of most purchases to an organization of your choosing.  You choose it simply by clicking the "Amazon Smile" link and logging in to Amazon like you would any other time.  You should see a notice at the top of your Amazon page now saying that it is supporting the BCM Alumni Association at William & Mary.  Simply go through with your purchase as you normally would.  Save that link as a favorite and use it every time you shop Amazon. Each quarter Amazon sends us one half of one percent (0.5%) of all sales made like this through Amazon Smile.  All at no additional cost to you!

A little token of our appreciation

join the coffee club

Donors who support us with a recurring donation provide essential support of our ministry.  Regular donations of any size help secure the financial future of our organization and the ministries we support.  Even the equivalent of a cup of coffee a day adds up!  So, in honor of that we send each recurring donor our gift of a beautiful mug featuring our beloved white front porch swing on our Association logo and name in green and gold, all on a durable mug with a white interior.  Sign up online to make recurring donations, and soon you will be enjoying coffee in your new mug, remembering the days on the front porch swing at the house!
