Leadership Circle

Carroll College’s Leadership Circle

When you make a Leadership Gift to Carroll College, you help create exceptional experiences for today’s Saints. Your gift assists Carroll in the ability to offer a nationally recognized educational experience. With support from donors in these critical areas:

  1. Carroll College Scholarship
  2. Carroll College Endowment
  3. Carroll’s Greatest Need

We can open doors of opportunity to students with a variety of passions, perspectives, talents, and life experiences. Our students will be immersed in a learning environment that emphasizes Catholic values, promotes service to others, and prepares them socially, professionally, and spiritually. The impact of your annual leadership gift is immediate and significant. Thank you for providing funding that is vital in creating a meaningful and memorable experience for all of our students

While we have a clear vision of Carroll’s future specific priorities change as the dynamics of education create new opportunities and possibilities.

To be successful in this competitive and challenging environment, Carroll must have flexible dollars that can be used when needed to fulfill the mission and objectives of the College. Unrestricted gifts provide those flexible dollars.

Because of the importance of unrestricted funds, a society was created to recognize those individuals who will lead Carroll’s future through their annual unrestricted contributions.  The Leadership Circle celebrates Carroll donors who support our Saints by giving $1,000 or more per year for this purpose. 

Unrestricted gifts are the College’s most valuable resource for long-term success because they allow money to go directly to the most critical, promising, and appropriate purposes.

What students are saying

"I come from a low income family and did not think I was going to have the chance to pursue a higher education degree. With help from leadership donors providing financial support, I am blessed to say that my academic journey includes Carroll College. Because of you, my education will be a springboard for my life and career. I am forever grateful. By giving back you have made my dreams come true." ~McKenzie, Political Science, Class of 2024

"Carroll is my home, and I am grateful for my experience. I’ve learned so much from my mentors, Carroll alumni, my professors and my peers. I cannot thank you enough for being part of my story and sharing in the legacy that is Carroll College. Without the help from leadership donors, I would not have been able to think about going to college. One day I look forward to giving back and helping someone else become a Saint." ~ Tess, Nursing, Class of 2024

"Thank you for supporting my education. Your selfless act has made it possible for me to do what I love, continue my education, and form bonds with my peers, my professors and my community. From the bottom of my heart and that of my families thank you for being a leader in giving back to Carroll College." ~ Robert, Computer Science and Computer Information Systems, Class of 2023
