Endowed Programs

Gifts toward lasting endowments in academics, athletics, fine arts, and spiritual life will boost students’ options as they pursue the full Carthage experience.

Equity and Inclusion

Establishing or contributing to an endowment for the Engagement and Inclusion Center will guarantee Carthage students’ long-term access to culturally responsive programming.

Health and Counseling

Gifts designated for the Health and Counseling Center will give Carthage students easier and faster access to in-person support on campus.

Facility Upgrades

Gifts toward Carthage facilities will provide students with the best possible preparation for their future vocations. Bring legacy buildings up to contemporary standards.

On Stephanie Mitchell, Valor Distinguished Professor in the Humanities:

“Professor Mitchell’s class wasn’t a cakewalk for me, but it instilled the importance of communicating with professors, taking advantage of the small class sizes, being open-minded, and exploring classes outside of your major.”
