Areas of Need

We have many areas of need at Carroll and there are many ways you can contribute to the university. Contributions directly impact our Carroll students' learning toward discovery, growth and knowledge.


By making an unrestricted gift to support the operating budget of the university, the Carroll Fund helps to bridge the gap between the actual cost of a Carroll education and what students pay to attend. There are several ways to make a gift to the Carroll Fund. You can contact the Office of Institutional Advancement at 262.524.7235 and make a gift via credit card, or use our online gift form.

The Carroll Fund is critical to maintaining the university's operating budget


More than 98 percent of Carroll students receive scholarship assistance, which helps them find a balance between studies, work and extra-curricular activities. Scholarships play a key role in maintaining Carroll's accessibility for all students. For more information or to establish an endowed scholarship, please contact Lawrence Johnson, senior director of development at 262.524.7240.

Annual gifts in support of scholarships help make possible a Carroll education for all students. Gifts of any size are applied in full to help fund the education.

A minimum gift or commitment of $25,000 will establish a permanently endowed scholarship fund at Carroll University. This fund will live on in perpetuity, and annual earnings will be available for student scholarships. Donors have the opportunity to name their scholarship fund.
