Am I a Grateful Saint?

Grateful SaintsIf you are a Carroll student who is grateful for student scholarships, financial aid help, going to school on a beautiful campus, having updated labs and computers on campus, having great professors, Carroll’s recreational facilities, renovations in residence halls, Carroll’s library... then you are a GRATEFUL SAINT!

Grateful Saints are students who are appreciative of their Carroll experience as a whole. These students realize that Carroll would not be the place it is today without the support of donors. Donors have given hundreds of thousands of dollars throughout the years to ensure that Carroll students receive the best education possible. Donors include alumni, parents, and friends of Carroll, faculty and staff members, local businesses, corporations, foundations and members of the senior class. These donors truly care about you and your education. Funds are raised for Carroll students through the IMPACT Annual Fund. Contributions to the IMPACT Annual Fund support every Carroll student’s education. Even if you pay all tuition costs and didn’t receive financial aid, your education was subsidized by these gifts. Annual Fund donors have enabled the college to strengthen its programs for the benefit of every student.

Contributors to your education are dedicated to continuing Carroll College’s tradition of excellence. They are proud to see what quality education students at Carroll receive and are eager to see Carroll’s outstanding reputation continue. Take a moment to realize how many people have given their time and treasure to ensure your education is nothing short of excellent. Take a moment to be a Grateful Saint!

10 reasons

seniors Support the IMPACT Annual Fund

  1. Tuition only covers about 70% of the actual cost of your Carroll education. The funds that the IMPACT Annual Fund provides each year is one of the few sources of income bridging the gap between what tuition provides and the total operating budget. Generous student support strengthens the Carroll experience for all
  2. 98% of all Carroll students will receive some type of financial aid this year. Carroll is responding to the continued need for assistance by families, and to make Carroll as competitive as possible in recruiting the most academically qualified students regardless of their financial circumstances.
  3. Nothing says "thank you" to the donors who have helped you, like keeping the tradition of giving alive.
  4. Alumni giving rates serve as the measure by which corporations and foundations rate alumni involvement. This is a major consideration for these groups when making major gifts to colleges and universities. Your senior gift counts towards our alumni giving rate!
  5. College guidebooks such as U.S.News and World Report, Barrons, and Fiske use alumni giving participation rates as a sole criterion to rate alumni satisfaction when completing overall institutional quality ratings. To assure Carroll maintains a top ranking, we must increase our alumni participation rate.
  6. The rankings noted in #5 above also serve to increase the value of a degree from Carroll and hence…your degree.
  7. Some of the areas that depend on support from annual gifts are: innovative academic programs, student scholarships, faculty teaching and research, campus technology, and much more.
  8. Because annual giving makes a substantial impact. Consider, it would take an additional $10 million in the endowment to support what the IMPACT Annual Fund gifts provide each year.
  9. To reaffirm their commitment to Carroll and its mission.
  10. Because one student like you, educated at Carroll, can positively impact the lives of thousands.
