Carleton Collaborate Campaign Reaches $200-Million Milestone

With the aid of more than 21,000 foundations, corporations and individuals, Carleton University’s drive to gather resources for projects aimed at improving lives around the world, and in its own backyard, has reached $200 million of its $300 million goal.

“We’re here for the good of the community, and with our supporters, we have a vision for what the community needs,” said Roseann O’Reilly Runte, president. “We are delighted, through this campaign, to partner on new ideas that will make a difference in the world.”

Leading up to Carleton’s 75th anniversary in 2017, the university launched Collaborate: The Carleton University Campaign, the most ambitious fundraising effort in the school’s history. The campaign seeks to raise $300 million for students, faculty and researchers so they can further contribute to the good of society, its economy and institutions, and the health and well-being of people globally.
