Philanthropy Made Possible in 2017

Gifting strategies:

  • Donations accepted any time throughout the year (cash, check, stocks, in-kind, etc).
  • Give an Endowment.

  • Attend, sponsor or purchase tickets for a ticketed event or program.
  • Join the First Ladies of CMT Club (exclusive events held throughout the year just for First Ladies).
  • Join the Encore Society and make monthly, recurring gifts to a CMT Fund of your choice (give by cash, check, credit or debit card or by ACH).
  • Submit a matching grant to your employer (ConocoPhillips, Phillips 66, CPChemical, and John Deere are currently offering a matching program) and double your gift.
  • Volunteer your time and talent to CMT.   Submit a volunteer grant to your employer. For every 20 hours you volunteer at CMT, ConocoPhillips and Phillips 66 will grant $500 to CMT.

More About Our Annual Appeals

Throughout 2017, CMT will hold fundraising events and donation campaigns:

  • Newsletters featuring CMT alumni and volunteers are mailed to donors, with remittance cards and return envelopes.
  • April - Taste of the Territory 2017 gala benefits CMT. Donors may purchase individual tickets to attend or make a gift to territory2017. Every 5th year the event is formal. In the "in-between" years, the event is a casual, theme-based soiree. Includes heavy appetizers, adult beverages, games, a raffle, and live entertainment (a live auction some years). Event guests purchase an event ticket and/ or raffle tickets and purchase tickets to play the games.
