Impact Week

Fall Impact Week is November 8-14, 2023 and Spring Impact Week is March 20-26, 2024. Impact Week is an event where three student organizations will compete to receive grant funding to complete their proposed community service project. These projects will benefit the William & Mary community and beyond. To receive funding, organizations must encourage fellow students to vote for their project in the form of a $5 gift to William & Mary that can benefit any area of campus. Funding received will be determined by the number of votes:

  • 1st place will receive $2,500 towards their project
  • 2nd place will receive $1,500 towards their project
  • 3rd place will receive $1,000 towards their project


Impact Week Spring 2024 Orgs


For our impact week project, NOBCChE will host a day of STEM fun and learning with middle or high school students from the surrounding area. We will bring students to the ISC giving them tours of our facilities, demonstrating fun science experiments, and hosting small group discussions on college and scholarship. Alternatively, we may have our members travel to the school to do these activities in their classrooms. We plan to partner with schools serving lower-income, disproportionately Black and Hispanic students. Our goal is to share our love of chemistry and inspire more students to pursue a future in STEM.

Men's Rugby

William & Mary Club Men's Rugby is partnering with Heritage Humane Society for Spring 2024 Impact Week! From March 20-26th, Men's Rugby will compete against other organizations to raise money for the Heritage Humane Society. Heritage Humane Society works as compassionate stewards of companion animals that are in transition from stray/surrender to forever homes, while also working to educate the public about humane animal care and treatment, advocate animal welfare, and provide affordable adoption and spay/neuter services to measurably reduce overpopulation of unwanted companion animals.

William & Mary Men's Rugby is a sport club founded in 1971 and competes in the Small College division of National Collegiate Rugby. We compete against other colleges across the state and country and constantly seek to grow the sport at William and Mary and fundraise to compete in tournaments across the country. As a no-cuts team, we field players of all backgrounds and experience. Men's Rugby looks forward to working with an organization like Heritage Humane Society, because as pets will always give humans their unconditional love, it is our responsibility as a society to provide protection for them and to ensure they are well cared for. 

Pi Beta Phi

Pi Beta Phi is partnering with The Arc of Greater Williamsburg, an organization dedicated to serving adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Together, we have established a literacy program aimed at improving reading comprehension and spelling skills among our clients. Members of Pi Beta Phi actively participate as tutors in this program. Our project primarily focuses on combating illiteracy. The funds raised will be allocated towards organizing literacy workshops designed to aid our clients in their journey as readers, speakers, and independent thinkers. Additionally, the money will be utilized to procure essential supplies such as books and reading comprehension workbooks.
