About the Campaign

Eager to seize the opportunity before us, Carthage College launched the Campaign for Carthage in 2013. We believed together we could elevate the lives of future Carthaginians, and the people whose lives they, in turn, would touch. Together, we would create the future.

The Campaign for Carthage exceeded its $35 million goal, raising more than $47 million. Carthage is stronger than it has ever been. Thank you.
