Jack Lindberg ’08 is helping a group of local eighth graders research, write, and edit a book about the James-Younger Gang’s 1876 escape route from Northfield. "The point is to teach them to do it on their own. I’m there to assist and guide them."
Gifts to the Annual Fund: $30 Million
Gifts to the annual fund, including the Alumni Annual Fund, the Carleton Parents Fund, and the Carleton Friends Fund, provide critical support for the ongoing needs of the College during the campaign. These gifts directly affect the daily lives of students and faculty members by providing resources for financial aid, faculty salaries and development, off-campus trips, field research, lectureships, and special seminars. Annual fund dollars provide the essential resources to move ahead with some of Carleton’s ambitious plans even as capital and endowment funds are being raised.
Gifts to the annual fund are one way that everyone can contribute to the success of Breaking Barriers, Creating Connections: The Campaign for Carleton.
