John Carroll University Receives $20 Million Gift from Anonymous Graduate

February 28, 2019 — John Carroll University announced that an anonymous graduate has made a $20 million unrestricted pledge to the institution.


An unrestricted gift is rare in higher education and can be used to address John Carroll’s most immediate needs and priorities.

“On behalf of the John Carroll University community, I am humbled and appreciative of this selfless act of transformational generosity,” said President Michael D. Johnson, PhD. “We will use this pledge to fuel our academic programs, enrich our campus and enhance the student experience as we continue to inspire the next generation of leaders.”

The anonymous donor underscored a deep gratitude to the Jesuits and academic leaders who made a significant impact on the college experience, namely former university presidents Fr. Joseph Schell, SJ, and Fr. Henry Birkenhauer, SJ, as well as Walter Nosal, PhD, founder of the John Carroll Counseling Center, and Arthur Noetzel, PhD ’38, former academic dean of the Boler College of Business. The donor also stressed a deep commitment to John Carroll’s mission and the impact of a social fraternity in making the pledge.

The donor commented: “My experience at John Carroll University shaped my life, molded my character and inspired my future. I am so grateful to be in a position to invest in John Carroll and to ensure that its mission of educating men and women for and with others continues in earnest.” [Source: John Carroll University]
