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 – and each year when funds are distributed to research programs and students, your name will be proudly acknowledged and remembered for your support.


  • 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.
