Please contact the Personal and Planned Giving Team for more information. You can participate in Carleton’s Endowment Fund and create your own permanently named endowment ($25,000 minimum) that allows you to fund areas of the University in which you have a special interest. Creating an endowment fund ensures your legacy of support for higher education as each year when funds are distributed to research programs and students, your name will be proudly acknowledged and remembered.


  • Permits the creation of a lasting memorial as endowments are established in perpetuity.
  • Extremely flexible. The endowed plan can begin immediately or after a predetermined time or upon the death of the donor.
  • Allows gifting over time with current tax savings.
