The Rundown

Tuesday, November 29 is Carleton’s Day for Good! 

UPDATE: We’ve reached our $150,000 goal and all matching funds have been unlocked. Thank you for your generosity!

Our goal: to make higher education a force for good. Our fundraising goal – for today alone – is $150,000. Each gift enriches the work of our students, faculty and researchers, and in turn, is an investment in the good they seek to bring to the world.

Every FutureFunder story you’ll read showcases an enormous commitment by our students, faculty and researchers to make the world a better place through innovative research projects, academic initiatives and other higher education priorities. No matter your interest, no matter your passion, there’s someone at Carleton changing the game.

With dozens of worthy projects on the FutureFunder and over 1000+ existing funds to choose from, there is a world of good to accomplish.

We hope you will join us on this exciting day as we make an impact on the world and do good through Carleton this #GivingTuesdayCA!

The Background

Last Giving Tuesday, the Carleton community came together to raise a record-breaking $122,000. For 24 hours, Carleton alumni, students, faculty, staff, parents and friends rallied in support of of innovative student projects, inspiring research initiatives and real-world learning opportunities.

This year, we could use your help. It’s going to be a day for good and to do good as we rally to support our students and faculty causes and projects at Carleton and raise an unprecedented $150,000!

The Rollout

Every gift counts, and on #GivingTuesdayCA they count for even more.  All gifts made on Tuesday, November 29th through will be matched, dollar-for-dollar.

In celebration of Carleton’s Day for Good, $150,000 in matching dollars are available. Matching funds will be applied on gifts up to $1000, or on the first $1000 of larger gifts. In the case of recurring gifts pledged on Giving Tuesday, only the first pledge payment qualifies for matching.

That’s right! Make a gift of $1000 and you’ll add an extra $1000 in matching funds toward the project of your choice, totalling $2000 in support of a project that inspires you.

With your help, we can unlock $150,000 in matching funds over the course of the day, helping students and researchers get the resources they need to make their work possible – on campus, and around the world.


It's here - it's finally here!


Happy #GivingTuesdayCA everyone! We hope that on this day of good will, everyone in the Carleton community will take some time to check out what Carleton has planned for the day at the FutureFunder.

Come on down to Alumni Hall from 11am to 2pm to check out our GivingTuesday activities and special announcements.

Goal achieved!


At 10:30 this morning we met our goal and unlocked the full $150,000 in matching funds. Read the post here:
