Memorial & Honorary Gifts

Individually or with a group, you can commemorate the life of a special person through a gift to Carleton in their honor or memory.

To do so, simply include a note with your gift indicating that it is in honor or memory of [NAME]. If the person is an alumnus/ae, please also include their Carleton class year, if known.

Memorial and honorary gifts are recognized in our Annual Report on Giving, under the name of the honoree.

If you are interested in a physical memorial, Carleton can work with you to plant a tree or place a bench on campus. The cost of planting a tree starts at $1,500 and placing a bench at $5,000. Please contact the stewardship office at 507.222.7108 for more information.
