Areas of Greatest Need

An unrestricted gift to the Senior gift is an unrestricted gift to the Alumni Annual Fund, which supports every part of Carleton’s operating budget and can be used for a range of critical needs: financial aid, student services like OIIL, the GSC, TRIO and the Chaplain’s Office, faculty/staff compensation, off-campus study, internship and fellowship opportunities and more.  It's the kitchen-sink fund, the rainy-day fund, the unexpected-opportunity fund.

Though the resources of the Annual Fund are used a little differently each year, they always go to support the core of Carleton’s mission: to deliver a meaningful, challenging and empowering experience in and out of the classroom.
