About


Spring is a time of next chapters. We're thinking about the incoming Class of 2026 who will soon begin writing their stories at Carleton. At the same time, the Class of 2022 is turning a page and saying farewell to campus, we're saying welcome to the alumni community. Help us celebrate and support these next chapters by making your gift to the Annual Fund before Carleton's fiscal year end on June 30!

Matching Funds
Updates

The Carleton community consistently demonstrates the power of collective impact, so we're stretching our goals! Donor participation is an important component of the Annual Fund, and it helps illustrate the strength and commitment of the alumni network.

Can we reach 2022 donors in honor of the Class of 2022 by 11:59pm CT on June 30? Certainly not without your help!

Don't forget, there are still matching funds available for the next 100+ gifts. We can't wait to see what we'll accomplish together! 

Today by Abigail Tupa

We've reached our dollar goal before the June 30 deadline! We're humbled by the generosity of the Carleton community once again. Thank you to the volunteers and donors whose contributions of time and treasure have made this result possible!

Meet Three of the Summer 2022 Student Research Partners

Student Research Partnerships (SRPs) give Carleton students the opportunity to collaborate with faculty on substantive areas of their research.

This summer, the Humanities Center is supporting 12 faculty-student research partnerships on campus and abroad. Gifts to the Annual Fund help enable these research opportunities and the scholarship advances they promote. 

Want to hear about even more SRP projects? Check out the Humanities Center podcast, Humanities Centered, for interviews with faculty and students!

Mental health is an important factor in a positive and fulfilling college experience. Student Health and Counseling (SHAC) provides more than 2,500 free mental health counseling appointments for Carleton students each academic year to serve this need. 

To provide additional support for Carleton’s BIPOC students, SHAC recently hired two therapists who are multicultural specialists. Lucy Baquero Oja ’09, MA, LMFT and Kenneth Hanna, MSW, LICSW, MBA (pictured above) also help lead the BIPOC Mental Health Collective for students of color.

Help ensure Carls have the resources necessary for their next chapters by making a gift in support of SHAC!

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!

The Class of 2026 is Starting their Carleton Story

In May, Carleton’s Admissions team officially welcomed 549 Carls to the Class of 2026. 

The newest Carls hail from 46 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and 30 countries. This group set a number of Admissions records for Carleton: 

  • A total of 8,583 applications received
  • More than 41% of Class of 2026 domestic students identify as people of color
  • Nearly 16% of the Class of 2026 are first generation college students

While recruitment and admission are important steps to building a more diverse and inclusive Carleton, supporting these students once they’re admitted is just as important. Make a gift today!

28 days ago by Abigail Tupa

The Annual Fund plays an integral role in supporting Carleton students, wherever their stories lead. Each year, nearly 40% of Carleton alumni support their alma mater with a gift to the Annual Fund. Join us as we strive to reach (and exceed) that goal by June 30th—and raise $1,000,000 for the next generation of Carls!

Why the urgency? Carleton's fiscal year ends on June 30, 2022. Make your contribution by 11:59pm CT to be included in your class donor honor roll this fall!
