Richard Kracum ’76 And Laurie Weiss Kracum ’76 have pledged $3 million to the Breaking Barriers, Creating Connections campaign. “To have a high-quality school like Carleton, the capital has to come from those of us who received an excellent education there,” Laurie says. “With our gift, we want to encourage other young people to do the same.”
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.
