Did you know that football is the only varsity sports team at Carleton that is entirely funded by Carleton’s generous community of supporters? This means that we rely on the support of people like you to make this program possible. Without football, campus just wouldn’t be the same.
Your donation provides students like Trevor, featured in the video above, with the resources to reach their potential both on and off the field, while keeping the Ravens’ spirit alive for years to come.
The return of Ravens Football in 2013 has been a huge success both on and off the field — three post-season appearances, the return of the Panda Game with 24,000+ fans, and 17 players either drafted or signed by CFL teams in the past three years. Off the field, the Ravens Revival has enhanced Carleton’s fall Throwback homecoming celebrations, and has engaged our football alumni (Old Crows) and the community at large to invest in the long-term sustainability of the program. The return of Ravens Football has been a true success story.
For our student-athletes and this program to continue to thrive, we need the support of our alumni and community. Unlike other varsity sports at Carleton, Ravens Football is the only team at that is community-led and wholly donor-funded, by generous alumni like you.
Your gift today ensures that student-athletes, like Trevor featured in the video above, are equipped with the resources to achieve academic success, while honing their skills as leaders and well-rounded citizens. Your gift will help to keep the Ravens’ spirit alive for years to come. Your donation is a win-win for everyone.
“As Trevor’s mom, I am thankful for the opportunities that my son has to represent Carleton as both an exceptional student and athlete. By investing in student-athletes like him, you’re making our world a better place by supporting leadership, community and academic success.
Through sports as a kid, and now through Ravens Football, Trevor has gained a strong sense of resiliency, teamwork and an undeniable work ethic. He continues to amaze me as he balances a full-time academic schedule, along with rigorous football training and volunteer work.
There’s nothing that can compare to the feeling of pride, watching your child do their best, work hard and have fun. I get to see this every time Trevor steps out onto the field and I’m grateful to donors like you for making that possible.”
