What’s in a name? A family tradition of outstanding support for Carleton College.
The name of the Weitz Center for Creativity reflects the contributions made by the family of Wally ('70) and Barbara ('70) Weitz, their children Katie ('96), Roger ('99), and Drew ('02), and their spouses Watie White ('93), Kate, and Meredith ('02), who together contributed $15 million towards the completion of the facility.
The Weitz family is the largest single donor in College history at $25 million, as they also gave $10 million to launch Carleton's $300 million capital campaign, successfully completed in June 2010. Barbara and Wally served as the campaign's co-chairs, and Wally has been a member of Carleton's Board of Trustees since 2000.
We gratefully recognize the Weitz family for their inspiring support for Carleton and their tremendous contribution to the construction of this dynamic new facility.
