We did it! The Carthage community came together to unlock a $200,000 gift from the Board of Trustees!  
Thank you!

Fulfilling our mission — together. 
On May 5, an international day of giving, Carthaginians came together for our students during this difficult time. We surpassed our goal of 847 gifts of support — thank you not only for financial gifts, but also gifts of time and compassion. 

Thank you for making a difference.

Priority Areas

Today is about coming together in response to the unprecedented needs caused by COVID-19. This Giving Day, we are prioritizing funds dedicated to the students and families most affected by the outbreak and the programs directly involved in the response and relief.

All gifts to Carthage on May 5 count toward our goal. Whether volunteering to be an alumni mentor or making a gift, you make a difference.

Why 847 gifts?
This Giving Day, we surpassed our goal of 847 gifts of support in honor of the Carthage’s founding in 1847. Thank you!
