Dear alumni and friends of John Carroll University,
On behalf of the Board of Directors of John Carroll, I thank you for your generosity throughout the past fiscal year (June 1, 2011 to May 31, 2012) and am pleased to present our annual Honor Roll of Donors.
Your contributions provide invaluable support and help us become a stronger university. More than 90 percent of our students rely on scholarships or financial aid to attend Carroll and pursue their dream of a Jesuit Catholic education. Gifts to the University enable us to continue to attract talented students with scholarships and financial assistance. For some, our ability to provide institutional aid makes the difference between coming to JCU or not and permits our students to become involved on campus and serve others. The educational, spiritual, and social opportunities offered at Carroll are possible, in part, because of philanthropic contributions – no matter the size – from alumni like you. Without them, we cannot make this education possible.
As a donor, you are an active partner with the University as we inspire students to excel in learning, leadership, and service in the region and in the world. Alumni gifts to the University are seen as a vote of confidence, a vote that is considered by foundations and funding organizations that award grants, associations that award higher education accreditation, and in rankings such as the one published by U.S. News & World Report. By giving to Carroll, you help students and yourself by enhancing the reputation of your alma mater.
I sincerely thank you for your support this year and invite you to continue to invest in John Carroll’s bright future by making a gift next year. Because of your support, we continue to graduate individuals of intellect and character who will lead and serve by engaging the world.
