Leaving a legacy

There’s a unique satisfaction that comes from making a gift that invests in the bright minds of the future.

You may have a strong belief in higher education, a belief that education shaped your career and your life. If you also believe in Carleton, its accomplishments and mission, you may have considered making a charitable gift to the University today or in the future.

When you give to Carleton, you’re leaving a legacy. You can make a difference through the establishment of scholarships or bursaries for students, contributing to the greater accessibility of higher education. You can contribute to capital projects, and help the University continue to grow and address the needs of a dynamic and diverse community. You can sponsor a chair, visiting scholar or annual lecture, enhancing the student experience and exposing the community to inspiring and innovative ideas. Whatever your wishes, we ensure that your gift is used the way in which you intend.

Establishing a planned gift involves trust. It is a thoughtful process of arranging a gift that takes into account your philanthropic objectives, maximizes tax benefits, and works within your overall estate plan. Donations can be outright, providing funds for immediate use, or can be planned now for receipt at a future time.

Planned giving is an option for almost anyone, not just the wealthy. You will be amazed by how much can be achieved and the huge impact you can make by even a modest contribution.

If you have already included a legacy to Carleton in your estate planning, or have thought about making a gift to Carleton, we want to show our thanks and offer our support services to make sure your contribution has the greatest impact.

“It has been my privilege to work with many different members of the Carleton community to put together a legacy that appropriate reflects each individual’s career, influence at Carleton, and specific area of interest,” says Rowena Griffiths, Director of Personal and Planned Giving. “The underlying common thread is the impact Carleton has had in their lives, which is why they want to make a very conscious decision to ensure that the same opportunity is always available to future students to have the best educational experience.”
