In today’s global economy, there is a critical need for employees who are skilled problem-solvers and critical thinkers. William & Mary has a long-standing reputation for training graduates to be prepared for the careers of today as well as for jobs that have yet to be created.
With your support, we can ensure that all students have access to the career development programs, services, connections and resources to transition confidently into a successful career.
Your Support Makes a Difference
No matter what career path a student chooses, the team of professionals at the Office of Career Development & Professional Engagement is there to help — and we hope you are too. Your generous contribution will allow students to pursue meaningful and interesting opportunities that might not be possible otherwise. There are several ways to make an impact:
Make a Direct Gift
From helping to cover a student’s cost to participate in programs such as the Etiquette Dinner or Mix & Mingle to supporting transportation or lodging for a student’s career immersion trip or internship, every gift — no matter the size — has the potential to change a life. Your gift would allow the Office of Career Development & Professional Engagement to serve more students by ensuring that an inability to pay for sponsored activities doesn’t keep students from finding their dream career.
Individuals and organizations can also strengthen their connections with W&M students, staff and faculty by sponsoring a specific career services program or part of a program.

Establish an Endowment
Those who want to create a legacy of outstanding leadership and enduring generosity may choose to contribute to an endowment or establish their own endowment with a minimum gift of $100,000 over five years. These contributions generate permanent income streams to support key initiatives and play a critical role in our future ability to help students be career-ready. Endowments also greatly enhance our long-term capacity to fund the goals and priorities of the Office of Career Development & Professional Engagement, enabling us to continue to expand our services.
