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 in May 2013. The Campaign is a $100 million initiative to invest in our students, enrich the academic experience, build on our Jesuit heritage, and enhance the student experience. To date, we have received more than $88 million in commitments.

The future of John Carroll University and our Jesuit Catholic mission, which distinguishes JCU, depends on each of us and it will take the power of many to achieve our goal.
