IMPACT Campus Campaign

IMPACT Campus Campaign FAQ's

The Campus Campaign is Carroll College's faculty and staff giving program. This campaign gives employees of Carroll College the opportunity to give back in support of the IMPACT Annual Fund or another area on campus they are passionate about.
Kick off of this campaign is Tuesday, October 1. The annual funds fiscal year begins July 1 and closes on June 30 of the following year. Although the main solicitations for this campaign will take place between kick off and Thursday, October 31, we will continue to receive gifts from members of our faculty and staff throughout the year. All of these contributions will count towards our percent participation goals that we report at the end of each fiscal year.
The annual fund is a year-round fundraising program that provides funds to address the college's most essential needs, especially student scholarships. The mission of Carroll's annual fund is to develop a culture of giving back to the College through encouraging annual gifts by educating alumni, faculty, staff, students and parents concerning the needs of the College and gaining their involvement in all aspects of Carroll's mission.

IMPACT Gift – The Annual Fund helps bridge the gap between tuition and Carroll's operating budget. Carroll's tuition income does not cover the full amount of a Carroll education. The Annual Fund assists the college's annual operating budget in providing support such as scholarships, financial aid, and numerous special donor interests. With 99% of full-time students receiving financial aid, funds raised through IMPACT allow students the opportunity to attend Carroll and receive an excellent education.

Restricted Gift - If you would like to contribute during the Campus Campaign to a restricted fund you can opt to designate your gift. Gifts may be designated to assist in many areas such as support of academic departments, professional development, or the Corette Library. Annual Fund gifts not otherwise designated support Carroll students through scholarships and financial aid. Curious if your department has a fund you can contribute to? Contact Wendy Tonkovich #4406 to check current fund accounts.

St. Charles Borromeo Guild - Members of the St. Charles Borromeo Guild make annual unrestricted gifts to Carroll at the following leadership levels.

  • Guild Member $1,000-$1,499
  • Guild Mentor $1,500-$2,499
  • Guild Associate $2,500-$4,999
  • Guild Fellow $5,000-$9,999
  • Guild Advisor $10,000+

The Guild ensures that Carroll can provide students with a learning environment that emphasizes Catholic values, promotes service to others and prepares them professionally and spiritually.

Contributors to the annual fund include alumni, parents, and friends of Carroll, faculty and staff members, local businesses, corporations, foundations, and members of the senior class. All have benefited from Carroll, some directly, others indirectly – and all ensure that Carroll continues its tradition of excellence. Many outside of the college are humbled to know that faculty and staff support the institution in this way. As a Carroll employee you see firsthand the good that Carroll does because you are a unique part of it. Your participation in the campaign will inspire the involvement of donors everywhere.
Yes! Every gift helps provide an affordable education for our students. The combined impact of many annual fund gifts is substantial. The higher faculty and staff support percentages, the more likely corporations and foundations are to become benefactors. Your gift counts!
Goals for our Campus Campaign always focus on participation, it's not what you give, it's that you give. Last year, 39% of the Carroll community made a gift back during the Campus Campaign. With your gift this year you can help us exceed our goal of 50% participation.
