About

We've spent the year celebrating who we are—professionally and personally—Because of Carleton. Behind all these campus experiences, relationships, and learnings are Carleton donors. Let's close out the fiscal year by closing the gap between our progress and goal. We have $2.5 million left to raise to reach $10.8 million!

In honor of the Class of 2024's Commencement tomorrow, we're looking back at their virtual class photo from 2020. Though social distancing marked their first year on campus, we're thrilled that they'll be together as they enter the alumni community.

Ever wonder what your individual gift can accomplish? Well, $5/month can have quite the impact, especially when you consider all the ripples of change three books, one counseling session, or one department event could have across campus!

Did you catch this announcement about Carleton's Commencement speaker in Carleton News? Celebrated Hmong writer and Carleton alum Kao Kalia Yang ’03 will give the commencement address for Carleton College’s 150th Commencement.

“I’m thrilled to be returning to Carleton to celebrate the Class of 2024,” Yang said. “It has been over 20 years since I stood on that stage. I will be the first Hmong commencement speaker in Carleton’s history, and look forward to sharing the power of our stories and their importance in our world.”

Commencement will take place Saturday, June 8 at 9:30 a.m. CT. The ceremony will be live streamed and archived for additional viewing—visit the Commencement website for links!

Carls, we have 30 days to raise the last $2.5 million needed to meet the Annual Fund's goal of $10.8 million. It may sound like an daunting number, but with the power of community and collective generosity, we know it's possible!
