3 Ways Every Carl Can Support Carleton

20 November 2018

1: Annual Fund Gifts

Bolstering the annual fund is a top campaign priority. Gifts to the annual fund are put to use in real time and show the impact of our collective efforts. Every gift from every Carl adds up to significant support for our current students and faculty members. Carleton accepts contributions through credit cards, checks, gifts of securities, and other means. Gifts may be unrestricted or may be designated to financial aid, teaching and learning, student life, or the Carleton Athletics Initiative.

2: Capital and Endowment Gifts

Donors who make gifts to capital projects and the endowment, in addition to their annual fund gifts, make a lasting difference in the lives of Carleton students. Endowment gifts exist at the college in perpetuity and help ensure a continuous source of funding for teaching, scholarships, research, and other priorities. Capital gifts support the spaces needed for a top-quality educational program for our faculty members and students.

3: Planned Gifts

You can plan a gift that costs you nothing today—or even increases your income—and that will support future Carleton students and faculty. Planned gifts include all types of bequests, life income gifts such as annuities, and even some gifts involving assets like real estate. Anyone who makes a planned gift of any size is welcomed as a member of the Joseph Lee Heywood Society.
