About the Caritas Society

Caritas Logo Annapolis St Johns CollegeA charitable community membership organization, Caritas Society of St. John’s College, Inc. has two purposes:

  • To support St. John’s by awarding financial aid grants and book grants to students who do not have sufficient funding to meet college expenses and might have to withdraw from school
  • To offer events and activities that promote enduring relationships between St. John’s and the larger Annapolis community.

Membership is open to anyone interested in the activities of Caritas. More than 200 people from the Annapolis region and the college are Caritas members.
