There are many ways to support Carleton University’s mission of higher education. Our mission has not really changed since our founding in 1942, and since then we have helped prepare several generations of leaders and contributors to the greater good of our global society… and we are not planning to slow down!

If you are planning for the future, a legacy gift in your Will for Carleton University is an easy thing to do.  Your legacy gift is probably one of the most significant acts of generosity that you will carry out. It is for this reason that we pledge to use your gift wisely and in the way you intend. Up to date, detailed information on Gifts by Will and sample language for a legacy gift are available. Please contact us if you have any questions.

A complete listing of guides to tax efficient philanthropy e.g. life insurance, retirement funds, gift annuities, donating securities and more, is available here.

Please tell us if you’ve already named Carleton University in your will or estate plan.   We would like to say thank you personally for your generosity and commitment, and welcome you to our community of legacy donors – a special group of supporters like you.
