A Giving Tuesday for the Record Books

Our final numbers are in, and we're elated to announce that we've witnessed another Giving Tuesday for the record books. Together, 1606 donors raised $769,639 to support Carleton students!

Thank you for helping Carleton exceed our Giving Tuesday goal (twice) in 24 hours. This outcome is proof that we can accomplish anything as long as we're Striving Together!

Carleton community, you've helped us surpass our Giving Tuesday goal for the third year in a row—wow! 

Together, we unlocked $100,000 in matching funds that will allow current students to discover, innovate, collaborate, and be in community throughout their time at Carleton.

Thank you to the donors and volunteers who made today possible. Carleton is a transformational place because of you!

We're so close to reaching our stretch goal. Will you be one of the next 50 donors to help us get there?

Just over 3 hours remain in Giving Tuesday, meaning we still have time to make a greater impact!

A generous Carleton alum has come forward to offer an EXTRA $25,000 when an additional 250 donors give by 11:59pm CT!

Reintroducing the illustrator behind our campus scenes

The theme "Striving Together" wouldn't be nearly as captivating without the incredible Carleton illustrations featured throughout this page. We want to (re)introduce the artist behind these campus scenes!

Leeya Rose Jackson is a multidisciplinary artist, art director, and designer based in the Twin Cities. Her work celebrates the intersections of identity, specifically Blackness, femininity, and queerness.

“We really appreciate how Leeya’s illustrations of our campus and students lift up the many dimensions of diversity across the Carleton community,” said Anita Fisher Egge ’94, director of the Alumni Annual Fund.

You can learn more about her work at her website Leeya Makes Noise and her design/branding shop Noisemakers Design. Give her a follow at @leeyamakesnoise!

A flurry of gifts!

Campus may be covered in a blanket of snow this morning, but we're warmed by all the caring donors and generosity we're witnessing today. We're already 1/3 of the way to our goal! 

One more flurry of gifts and we'll be at 500 donors—the next tier of our match!

We're starting Giving Tuesday off with tons of momentum! Thank you to the volunteers and donors who have taken action early in the day!

What does "Striving Together" mean?

To celebrate the power of collective generosity, the Annual Fund launched its theme for the year: "Striving Together."

What does it mean? Alumni Annual Fund Board Chair Melissa Albay '90 shared her interpretation in an interview for Carleton News.

“‘Striving Together’ means every single one of our volunteers and donors makes an impact,” Albay ’90 said. “Regardless of size, each gift builds on the one before it, rallying the community to unlock support for Carleton students. All of our efforts build energy off of each other toward our end goals and successes.”

Read more and be part of our collective impact today!
