A Historic Moment, an Extraordinary Future

Thanks to the astounding generosity of the University’s donors, the Campaign for Carolina (Oct. 6, 2017 – Dec. 31, 2022) reached more than $5 billion, exceeding its $4.25 billion goal and becoming the first university in the South — and one of only 16 universities in the U.S. — to exceed $5 billion in a completed campaign. Many gifts are already at work supporting Carolina’s key strategic priorities, while some donors have made pledges or established endowments that will provide a steady stream of resources in the decades to come. The stories here offer just a glimpse of the University’s extraordinary future.

Students and the Educational Experience

Gifts to the Campaign for Carolina increased and strengthened the University’s ability to offer every type of scholarship and fellowship and are already making a difference in ensuring this generation and the ones to come have the tools they need to thrive.
