Dear Tar Heels,

As we welcome in the new year, we are also marking the conclusion of the historic Campaign for Carolina. On Dec. 31, the campaign officially closed as UNC-Chapel Hill’s largest and most ambitious fundraising effort ever.

I am grateful to every supporter and volunteer who invested in Carolina’s future. Thank you for your generosity and for your belief in our great University.

Even as we tally gifts received in the final days, we already know that the Campaign for Carolina was a resounding success. More than 215,000 donors honored UNC-Chapel Hill with their support. In November, the campaign eclipsed $5 billion in total funds raised, making Carolina just one of six public universities to hit that mark.

This is a remarkable achievement. Not just because of the numbers — as impressive as they are — but because of the impact the Campaign for Carolina will have on our campus and state, our nation and the world. Your gifts, many of which are invested in our long-term future, will pay dividends for decades to come.

A few weeks ago, a group of dedicated supporters gathered to celebrate the impact that this campaign will have. I hope you will watch the video above to view highlights from the evening.

With gratitude,

Chancellor Kevin M. Guskiewicz
