Carroll Community College Foundation's Annual Campaign provides funding assistance with ongoing costs such as student scholarships, innovative programs and other worthy initiatives.
The campaign allows the Foundation to quickly respond to the college and students' short term needs, which is vital to the college community's well being. Carroll continually faces the challenges of providing an affordable education and instruction in state of the market settings to area residents. Funding from the Annual Campaign helps our college overcome these challenges.
The Foundation recently conducted the employee phase of the 2013 Annual Campaign. Seventy-four percent of college staff and faculty have generously supported the campaign by donating over $49,000! This exceptional support demonstrates the dedication of our college community.

A Student's Perspective
I am extremely grateful to Carroll for the opportunity they have given me, to learn and grow as a young adult for the next two years. The cheerful environment and quality education would not be possible if it were not for those who graciously donate to the college. I am thankful to those who have donated to make our school a better facility for learning and making new friends. A few years ago, I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis, and it slightly changed my college path. That year, I decided to go to Carroll, and I can honestly say it is one of the best choices I have made. I have been given many opportunities to join different clubs and activities. I am a Hill Scholar, currently completing the Leadership Challenge, a Psi Beta member, and participating in many campus activities through the Campus Activities Board. I have grown as a student and as a person, due to the positive views that Carroll has given me. Again, I’d like to thank those who have donated to Carroll, a place that has helped me grow into the person I want to be." - Angela Russo
An Alum's Perspective
"Behind every successful entrepreneur there is at least one unsung hero. For me, that hero is Carroll. Without the support of the faculty and my fellow students, I would have never made it as far as I have. Not only am I proud to support Carroll; I brag about it!" - Jeannine Morber, president of Morber Marketing
A Faculty Member's Perspective
“I began working at Carroll in 1989. Over the past 23 years, I’ve seen thousands of students transformed as a result of their time at Carroll. Working at Carroll is a gift – it is such a blessing to come to work and know that you can make a difference in someone’s life. Contributing to the Annual Campaign is a natural extension. The Foundation Office provides scholarships to students who need assistance the most. In addition, the Foundation has supported many initiatives on campus that would not have been possible without their contribution. I’m particularly grateful to the Foundation for their support of the Alternative Spring Break (ABS) program. For six years, the Foundation has sponsored students, who freely give of their time, to help Habitat for Humanity and other service organizations. The support of the Foundation has allowed more students to participate in ASB and help others in need. My contribution to the Annual Campaign has a ripple effect, benefiting our students and the larger community we serve.” - Kate Demarest
A Staff Member's Perspective
“I am honored to serve as Co-Chair of the 2013 Annual Campaign, especially this year as the college celebrates its 20 year anniversary. As one of the college's long tenured members, I am fortunate to have witnessed and been a part of Carroll's growth, from its humble beginning on South Center Street, and to have come in contact with many students.
It has always been important to me to give back to the college, and over the last 20 years I have proudly supported the Annual Campaign – without hesitation. One does not have to work in higher education for very long to realize the growing need for financial assistance and the importance of scholarships to students as they strive to achieve their educational goals. Throughout my career, I have seen many Carroll students share this common need – the need for financial support. I cannot think of a better way to help our students than to support our scholarship program.
I am, again, proud to support our students by contributing to this year’s Annual Campaign, and honored to serve as Co-Chair of the 2013 Annual Campaign.” – Joel Hoskowitz
