Connected giving

The Futurefunder is a way to invest in post-secondary education. It connects you – friends, family, concerned citizens and active philanthropists – directly with the people, projects and possibilities at Carleton that will make a difference in your world. Here, you can turn your gift – large or small – into big impact.

Every gift made through FutureFunder is a charitable donation, and will be eligible for a tax receipt. We do not charge any fees on donations, and 100% of the value of your gift will go directly towards the project/fund that you are supporting.

Establish a scholarship or bursary for Carleton students

Carleton University is proud to have one of Canada’s best student aid programs, and alumni and friends of the university make this continued success possible. Donors may choose to establish a scholarship, which recognizes academic achievement, or establish a bursary, which supports those in financial need. Donors may also choose to designate their award toward a specific department or academic unit. Learn more about scholarships & bursaries

Support a Current Campaign

By supporting a campaign through FutureFunder, donors have the opportunity to advance causes that matter to our society. Donations to these Carleton-led initiatives leverage higher education as a force for good by enhancing the student experience, bolstering research and expanding scholarships and awards.

Donate to Carleton Funds

Throughout our history, many private individuals, foundations and other donors have established funds for scholarships, bursaries, research funding and other critical needs. Often these funds are named for beloved family members, funded in tribute to classmates or former professors, have been established by proud graduates, or were created to advance learning in a particular field. Many of these funds are permanently endowed (where the gift’s investment income is used, rather than the principal). The funds might not have a specific fundraising deadline or financial goal, but if you believe in the fund’s principles, you are welcome to support it. Donate now
