On the eve of our 75th anniversary, we have launched Collaborate: The Carleton University Campaign, the most ambitious fundraising effort in Carleton’s history. It is a campaign to raise $300 million for our students, faculty and researchers, so that they can contribute more to the good of society, its economy and institutions, and the health and well-being of citizens around the world.

The Background

As a pillar of the community, and as a platform for donors and philanthropists to bring positive change across the globe, Carleton is Here for Good.

If you share our conviction that there is much good to be done, we could use your help. And here is your chance.

The Collaborate Campaign is our moment to rally together, to partner your vision and commitment with the resources and skills of the Carleton community.

Fundamentally, your participation in this campaign will deliver good: prosperity, discovery and community for our world.

The Rollout

Through the FutureFunder, you can collaborate with us to realize change and progress in your community. You can support short-term, student-led crowdfunding projects. You can invest in groundbreaking research initiatives or important academic endeavours. You can support a student in need or a competitive athlete.

Any gift you make, whether on the FutureFunder, over the phone or in person, will count toward the $300 million goal for the Collaborate campaign.

The Impact

Carleton students, graduates and faculty provide society with true and lasting economic good through innovation and growh. Our key academic programs and research initiatives make progress in engineering and technology, global business, entrepreneurship and the pursuit of excellence.

The common good of knowledge – both providing it and pursuing it – is central to Carleton’s mandate. By offering access to higher education and research in diverse disciplines such as physics, health sciences and the humanities, we’re able to contibute long-term and often immeasurable benefits to society.

A focus on social good builds a culturally rich, globally aware and well-governed society. Carleton’s established emphasis on public affairs and policy, social sciences, media and arts contributes to healthier, happier and more humane interactions between people and institutions locally, nationally and around the world.
