Back in 2015 we took a bold step to restore a vital piece of Covenant College – Carter Hall. This building had been cared for, patched, and renovated over the years, but time and use had taken its toll. A big plan was put together to not only repair this space, but restore it and do the needed work so that we’d have it for decades to come. One piece of this was the decision to put an eighty year roof on and, God be praised, it’s almost finished!

Our Raise the Roof Campaign is a friendly challenge for alumni to help us close out this Carter renovation. We’re asking you all to not only celebrate the work done so far, but help us finish it out. We’ve been blessed beyond belief by many alumni, family, estate, and foundation gifts these past two years – but now we need your help to finish!

We’re having some fun with this appeal – so please join with your hall mates to show up your rival hall 😉 We invite you and your (not so inner) competitive spirit as well as your love for the College to Raise the Roof! The winning hall will be recognized with a plaque placed in the Carter tower.

For those who would like to give and don’t want to claim a hall, we need your help as well! [We’re also open to gifts given against another hall].

To learn more about the campaign – why it was needed, what we hoped to accomplish, and how it supports the mission of the College – please visit covenant.edu/carter.
