Our mission in University Advancement is to advance John Carroll University’s resources and reputation through relationship building, strategic communications, and providing outstanding service to all of our clients and constituents.

Philanthropic support of our students and the University has never been more important. In fact, more than 90% of JCU students receive merit scholarships or need-based aid and philanthropy accounts for a vital 15% of the University’s operating budget. Consistent support is needed because tuition and fees cover only three-quarters of the cost of a Carroll education.

To help meet these needs, we launched our Forever Carroll Campaign—a $100 million initiative to invest in our students, enrich the academic experience, build on our Jesuit heritage, and enhance the student experience.

Thanks to gifts from almost 22,000 donors, we exceeded our goal and raised $104.5 million for scholarships, new internship opportunities, new endowed professorships and faculty development opportunities, new mission-related initiatives, and even more beautiful places to live, learn, pray, and play on campus. The campaign officially concluded in September 2016.
