Carlson 4 Community (C4C)
Carlson 4 Community (C4C) was created in 2005 by full-time MBA students at the Carlson School of Management to bring together full-time, part-time and executive MBA students with the school’s alumni and faculty to support local causes.
The school’s leading student organization promoting volunteerism and community involvement within the Twin Cities, C4C has created various opportunities for Carlson students to give back. The biggest event is the annual Carlson MBA Charity Auction, which benefits a different local charity each year as selected by the student body.
C4C is always ready to work with talented people and explore new ideas that contribute to the community. Please contact the C4C team if you have any questions about C4C or our upcoming events.

This year, C4C is raising funds for Operation No Limits (ONL). ONL serves youth in 3rd-12th grade at the Anoka County Juvenile Center during and after detainment, as well as a low-income housing development. ONL strives to make a difference in kids’ lives through education, support, encouragement, positive experiences, life and social skills development, and advocacy.
Operation No Limits
C4C is excited to support Operation No Limits (ONL) in its important mission to enrich the lives of at-risk youth through education, support, encouragement, positive experiences, life and social skills development, and advocacy. ONL serves youth in 3rd-12th grade at the Anoka County Juvenile Center during and after detainment, as well as a low-income housing development. For context, the Anoka County Juvenile Center enrolls over 1,000 youth per year. ONL works consistently with long-term residents (approximately 200 per year), as well as short-term residents (about 750+ per year). Many of its fundraising projects support programming efforts that impact the way these at-risk youth view and interact with the community and learn the skills needed to develop a positive future. As victims of abuse, poverty, and neglect, many of the at-risk youth do not have access to the life, social, or technical skills needed to create a sound future and become productive members of society. Through ONL's educational efforts and service-learning activities, its target population is given the tools and resources needed to become active participants in the community, and the skills needed to better their lives through employment, post-secondary education, and mentoring programs.
