Online Giving

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 development@jesuitvolunteers.org.

Traditional Mail

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

Memorial and Honorary Gifts

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 the development@jesuitvolunteers.org for more information.

Qualified Retirement Plans

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 development@jesuitvolunteers.org.

Matching Gifts

Your employer may match your donation to JVC. Contact your HR or payroll department about your company’s matching-gift policy; some 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 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.

Jesuit Volunteers are a community of faithful individuals that live simply and act boldly in the pursuit of social justice. Each year, a new set of volunteers embrace Ignatian values by taking the bold step of committing to a year of service. By supporting their journey, you create a path to a different kind of prosperity.

Send Me To Serve
