Scholarships Annual Fund

What is the Scholarships Annual Fund?

Our passions often guide the choices we make. For each of us, what is closest to our hearts is vastly different. Perhaps it is valuing young people, their ideas, energy and desire to make a difference in our world. Maybe you want to support students growing to their potential and making their educational goals a reality. Or, you want to give back to the place that started you on the path to your life’s work and helped you to fulfill your passions.

Whatever the reason, your gift made to Carroll College Scholarships Annual Fund today makes an immediate difference. The Scholarships Annual Fund provides a special opportunity to support Carroll’s strategic initiatives while providing continuing support to Carroll students. Both are critically important to the future, both Carroll’s and the students we serve.

Your annual support is critical so we want to provide a variety of avenues for giving that speak to your passions.

Student Scholarships

Without question, the greatest need is student scholarships. 99% of Carroll students receive financial aid. Your gift allows students the opportunity to lessen their financial burden, freeing them to focus on their Carroll experience.

Your Interest or Passion

You are also most welcome to designate your gift to area that speaks to your heart.  As an alumni, you may want to make your gift to the department of your major or the student program that made your Carroll experience special. As a business, you may want to support a department on campus that prepares employees for the future. And friends of the college, have their own special connections they may want to honor with a gift.

Let Us Decide

Your gift is immediately directed to the college’s greatest need including the ability to offer innovative student programs, attract and retain excellent faculty and students, and maintain Carroll’s beautiful campus and facilities. A strong annual fund allows Carroll to pursue excellence in all areas.

Leadership Circle

The Leadership Circle is about putting Carroll College within reach of students who could not otherwise afford a private, Catholic higher education.  Leadership Circle benefactors ensure that Carroll can provide students with a learning environment that emphasizes Catholic values, promotes service to other and prepares them professionally and spiritually.  The Leadership Circle recognizes donors who contribute $1,000 or more to Carroll College's annual fund.

Call to Action Background

I’ve been at Carroll for two years, and in that short time I have had countless experiences and opportunities that have helped me grow as a student and as a person.  I am confident that these experiences will set me apart as I enter into the workforce in a few years. The support Carroll receives and gives students is greatly appreciated.  My academic scholarships helped me make my decision to come to Carroll, and have shown me how much alumni donors and others who support Carroll care about current Saints. I’m grateful for the personal relationships I have with my professors who I know want to challenge me and help me succeed. I’m grateful for the Carroll community that is the perfect size. And I’m grateful for donors, like you, who support Carroll College!
