Give to Carthage

Carthage has done so much, and come so far, and yet we still see enormous opportunity. Imagine, with more resources, how far the College can go. Only the generosity and vision of those who give to the College make this possible. These gifts, and those who give them, lead the way to continued excellence.

The Tower Initiative

Through Fall 2018
Construction has begun on a facility that will transform the residential experience for Carthage students beginning in Fall 2018. This new eight-story residence hall, nicknamed “the Tower,” will house up to 126 residents and devote two floors to shared spaces where students can socialize, collaborate, and cook meals. Learning to live with others in a mutually respectful environment is an essential step in character development. This facility will allow Carthage to more fully embrace its mission as a residential college.

The Campaign for Carthage

Successfully concluded in Summer 2017!
Eager to seize the opportunity before us, Carthage 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. The Campaign for Carthage exceeded its $35 million goal, raising more than $47 million. Carthage is stronger than it has ever been. Thank you.

Why We Give

“Every little bit counts. … It is not about making the largest donations. The contribution itself, no matter the amount, shows an appreciation for an experience Carthage made possible.”
