Thank you for volunteering for Carleton College! Thanks to the passionate alumni volunteers who lead the Alumni Annual Fund (AAF), Carleton alumni give back to the college in numbers almost without parallel in American higher education. The level of ownership that Carleton's alumni volunteers have assumed in raising dollars for the AAF is extraordinary and critical to our success.
