Your Donation at Work

Support from the Res Publica Society creates transformational experiences for students and faculty at CMC by contributing more than 85% of the Annual Fund dollars raised each year. This generous support is immediately invested throughout campus in areas such as:

  • Financial aid, ensuring CMC's ability to continue meeting 100% of the demonstrated financial need of incoming first-year students; 
  • Internships and experiential learning, providing resources for students to participate in real-world office settings and the opportunity to research side-by-side with faculty members;
  • Athenaeum speakers, featuring experts on ethical leadership, human rights activism, social media entrepreneurship, and countless other topics; and, 
  • Roberts Pavilion, hosting athletic competitions, large speaker events, and career fairs.


In addition to the world-class opportunities provided by support from the Res Publica Society, our leadership donors are recognized with the following benefits:

  • Invitation to the annual Res Publica Luncheon Speaker Series;
  • Listing in our annual Honor Roll of donors;
  • Exclusive off-campus events connected to CMC Chapter activities;
  • Receptions with President Chodosh during Alumni Weekend and Family Weekend;
  • Recognition of your society membership at many alumni and parent events; and,
  • Knowledge that, through your gift, students benefit from a motivating and engaging CMC experience.
