Giving Tuesday Thank you

The Carroll community united on #CUonGivingTuesday to raise more than $200,000 for the Carroll Fund, student scholarships and other areas of need, such as Carroll’s cupboard.  

On Tuesday, Nov. 29, the University surpassed its one-day fundraising goal, collecting a total of $230,871. We are grateful for all the loyal members of Carroll’s network, who generously donated gifts to help us drive tradition forward, making the Pioneer experience accessible to all who seek it. 

“We are truly overwhelmed by the generous support from the entire Carroll community,” said President Cindy Gnadinger. “Because of the generosity of all our donors,  students will continue to thrive here at Carroll for years to come.” 

“Carroll Ambassadors played a pivotal role in making #CUonGivingTuesday a huge success this year,” said Nicole Duncan, senior director of Annual Giving & Advancement Services. “We had over 150 alumni, parents, students, faculty, staff and friends helping to promote the day’s events.” Giving Tuesday continues to be Carroll’s largest giving day of the year, thanks to the outpouring of support from the entire Carroll community.  

In addition, the Alumni Council set forth a mystery challenge this year. The challenge was not only to have 100% of the alumni council participate, but for their collective dollars to go toward the fund that raised the most from alumni on Giving Tuesday. The Alumni Council donations resulted in an additional $3,000 toward student scholarships! 

We deeply appreciate all who helped Carroll surpass our fundraising goal on Giving Tuesday to support current and future students. We did it, Pioneers!
