For over 60 years, the Jesuit Volunteer Corps (JVC) has worked tirelessly for underserved communities across the world. Every day, our volunteers (JVs) transform the lives of poor and marginalized persons by providing vital service and accompanying deserving communities.
Your support is essential to sustaining JVC's mission of forming young leaders committed to building a more just and hopeful world. A gift to JVC allows us to maintain agency partner fees at a modest level, while also assuming the costs of training, supporting, and housing Jesuit Volunteers both locally and abroad.
Join us in this important work. We count on tireless supporters like you to ensure day-to-day operations are funded, volunteers receive life-changing experiences and formation opportunities, and we continue to build an organization for a future fighting for what matters.
A gift to JVC will:
-Increase the impact of local nonprofit organizations working on the front lines of social justice, and providing essential programs and services to those in need;
-Empower young leaders to bring Ignatian values and a sense of purpose to their life’s work; and
-Sustain hundreds of JVs and build a community of former JVs committed to a more just and hopeful world.
We are honored by your faith and belief in our mission. We will gladly work with you to find a means of support with which you are most comfortable. Please review the options below and, as always, reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
Go green and give online, where there will never be a stamp, paper, or carbon required to send in your donation. Just use your credit card or write a virtual check with an electronic fund transfer from your bank account. Consider making a regular monthly gift. By spreading your payments across the course of the year, you can multiply the size of your overall donation and increase your impact for JVC.
You can make a lasting contribution toward our mission by considering a bequest to JVC through your will or living trust. For more information, contact the email@example.com.
If you would prefer to remit your donation through the mail, make your check payable to Jesuit Volunteer Corps and send it to:
Jesuit Volunteer Corps
801 Saint Paul Street
Baltimore, MD 21202
Any donation you make can become a tribute gift. For birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, graduations, promotions, holidays, or in memory of someone who has died, you can honor your loved ones with a gift to JVC. Be sure to make note of it along with your check, online donation, or in conversation with JVC staff.
If the stock you donate has appreciated in value from the time of your purchase, you can avoid paying future capital gains tax by donating shares directly to JVC. The full value of the shares at the time of the donation is tax deductible. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Naming JVC as a beneficiary in your qualified retirement plan (IRA, KEOGH, 401(k) or 403(b)) could result in more assets being passed to your heirs than if you make a bequest from other funds in your estate. For more information, contact the email@example.com.
Your employer may match your donation to JVC. Contact your HR or payroll department about your company’s matching-gift policy: some may even match gifts made by spouses or retirees. When you send us your signed form, the impact of your gift may be doubled, or even tripled. Please note that JVC is a registered 501(c)(3) organization which derives it status from the U.S. Catholic Conference of Bishops, as listed in the Official Catholic Directory.
Send Me to Serve is a fundraiser that allows JVs to connect the people in their lives to the year or years of service they are entering.

-Bolstering their commitment to a sacrificial year or years of service.
-Supporting the facilitation of a quality formation program, including retreats.
-Helping our partner agencies continue and expand their ministries to the poor and marginalized.
-Ensuring that JVC can continue to recruit and send volunteers into the world for years to come.

"My community has become a fellowship potent in the fight for justice and a hopeful model for living in relationship with others. More than anything I’ve accomplished as a Jesuit Volunteer, I’m proud of what my community has become."
"“Playing poor” seems to minimize the challenges of poverty and dilute simple living into a show, where I “play” a certain part. Articulating the difference between intentional simple living and “playing poor” as a yearlong volunteer proved incredibly challenging."
"Embarking on a yearlong journey that was completely new, there were naturally many uncertainties as we began. One of the only things that it felt like I knew as this year of service began was that it would not come again. No matter what it held -- highs and lows, growth and challenges -- it was all unique to this JV experience."
