Commencement 2008Carleton Parents Fund

Carleton parents have an enormous stake in the health and well-being of the College, and they seem no less dedicated than the children they send here. In the last five years, giving to the Carleton Parents Fund has increased by 56%, resulting in nearly $655,000 to support the College's mission in fiscal year 2008-2009. Nearly half was given by current parents who are already making a significant commitment to fund their children's educations.
