Red and Ready Ambassadors bring the Carthage Community together!

As an ambassador, you'll motivate your friends, family, colleagues, and classmates to donate to the Carthage cause that makes you #RedandReady to give back!

When you sign up, we'll provide you with your #RedandReady T-Shirt, a custom ambassador link that you can post online or send to friends and family. Every time someone uses your link to make a gift, our ambassador leaderboard will update the number of donors and dollars you've helped secure.

Sign up today and rise to the top of our first-ever Ambassador Challenge. The top three Ambassadors will receive a mystery Red and Ready Swag Box!

Talking Points & FAQs

What is Red and Ready Giving Day?

Red and Ready Giving Day is a 36-hour online fundraising event that brings together alumni, parents, students, faculty, staff, and friends from all over the world to give back, celebrate, and support the areas of Carthage that mean the most to them.

How is Giving Day different from any other day?

Giving Day is a chance for the Carthage community to come together and make an impact on Carthage students, programs, teams, and more. In addition, every gift made on Giving Day helps earn bonus funds and counts toward challenges with additional matching funds, so gifts make an even bigger impact!

What is the goal?

Our goal is to secure 750 donors between 12 a.m. CDT on March 14, 2024 and 12 p.m. CDT on March 15, 2024– that's 750 people coming together to support Carthage!

What if my friends and I can only make a small gift?

Every gift, of every size, makes a difference for current and future Firebirds! Giving Day is all about the Carthage community coming together to make a difference with gifts at every level.

How can I help spread the word?

Your voice is important, and you can help by sharing why you give– and what matters to you at Carthage– with your friends, family, classmates, and colleagues. Check out our social toolkit for images to post on your social networks, and make sure to use #RedandReady. You can also use the sample emails, texts, and social media posts found in the toolkit. And don't forget to sign up officially as an ambassador to see your impact!

I have additional questions and/or want to know more. Who can I contact?
