A public university that invests in people, that helps the state thrive and do good things is at the heart of everything Carolina does.
That quality is one that Art Pope, a Carolina alumnus and North Carolina business owner, recognizes in the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. And a quality that leads him to invest in the University.
“This is an opportunity for us to continue our work investing in excellent education for the benefit of the entire state.” Art Pope, Pope Foundation chairman and a Carolina alumnus. “The Campaign for Carolina does offer an opportunity for meaningful donations, both large and small, to provide future generations the same opportunities that our family had.”
The John William Pope Foundation made a $10 million commitment to Carolina that will provide support for the Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center, UNC Horizons, the track and field program, and the Philosophy, Politics and Economics Program.
