About Carroll Cares

As we face the uncertainty of these days, weeks, and months ahead, we are sure of one thing: Carroll Cares. 


We take care of each other, our loved ones, our communities and our world. Carroll Cares is a campaign to showcase how the John Carroll community is coming together in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic to support one another and the University that we love so much.


You can join the Carroll Cares campaign by sharing your story and, if you are able, by supporting the Carroll Fund or the Carroll Cares Emergency Relief Fund. There are also many other ways to support the JCU community in non-financial ways.


Together, we look forward to the future with hope.


Across our community, we see faculty, staff and students exemplifying the #CarrollCares spirit. Explore their stories:

Share the #CarrollCares Campaign & Your Story

Spread the word about #CarrollCares on social media. At the top of the page are buttons to share via email, text, Facebook and Twitter. It's that easy! Over half of the money raised to date has come from this type of sharing.

You can share YOUR story right here! Create a short "selfie" video and upload it directly to this campaign* (go to the Advocates tab). Consider sharing:

  • What JCU means to you or how it has shaped you!
  • How do you embody the spirit of #CarrollCares?
  • Share how you have been adapting in the midst of this pandemic.


Help Hire a Blue Streak

> Share a job opportunity for the Class of 2020 or fellow JCU alumni. > Create a project-based virtual internship opportunity this summer. > Participate in virtual career programs for student over the summer and into the 20-21 academic year. If you are able to help in any or all of the ways above, simply complete this short form and we will be in touch.

 

Spotlight a Deserving Alum

If you know of fellow alumni on the front lines of this pandemic, who deserve a spotlight during this time, let us know and we may profile them as a source of inspiration.


Thank our Faculty & Staff

JCU Faculty and Staff have been working tirelessly throughout this pandemic to keep the operations of the University functioning efficiently, while we continue to serve our students. Was there a memorable Faculty or Staff member during your time at JCU? Send them a note of encouragement! Access our Campus Directory here.


Some of you may be facing financial challenges of your own. Please know that our thoughts are with you during this difficult time and we kindly ask that you support John Carroll University in any way that you can right now.

Make a gift - of any amount - to the Carroll Fund or the Carroll Cares Emergency Relief Fund to support the University's urgent needs. Every dollar counts.


The Carroll Fund: The Area of Greatest Need

The University is saving where we can and should, but now more than ever, the Carroll Fund must help us meet the challenge of these unexpected costs. During this pandemic, support for the Carroll Fund allows the University to be flexible when responding to the changing needs of our students and community. 


The Carroll Cares Emergency Relief Fund

100% of all donations to the Carroll Cares Emergency Relief Fund enable the University to better support the move of all courses and student support online. All gifts to the Emergency Relief Fund will be used to address immediate unexpected and unbudgeted needs, such as:

  • Technology support, software enhancements, and licenses for online remote learning. Within 7 days, 100% of our faculty moved all of their courses online for the remaining of the semester.
  • Purchasing new Zoom software and expanding licenses to deliver courses online for students, as well as continuing operations of the University.
  • Purchasing computers or web hot spots for the highest need students – who did not have any access to laptops, computers or internet – so they could continue their studies.
  • Providing staff with additional resources to move Student Support 100% online, including Campus Ministry, the Career Center, the Counseling Center and more.
  • The On-Campus Food Pantry offers students in need with confidential access to nonperishable food items during the week.

Inspire your friends and classmates by creating a matching gift or challenge:

  • Matches are based on dollars donated, not the number of donors. Example: I will match donations made by the Class of 1995, up to $200.
  • Challenges are focused on the number of donors who support JCU. Example: I will donate $100 if 10 fellow class of 2018 alumni donate.
