Q: How can I make a gift today?
A: Students can donate online at give.unc.edu/donate with a credit card, or mail a check/cash to: UNC-Chapel Hill, PO Box 309, Chapel Hill, NC 27514-0309. Questions about donating? Call 919-537-3818.
Q: I already pay tuition, why should I give more?
A: Most students don’t realize that tuition and state funding only cover half of your education – private support helps bridge the total cost of attending UNC. Your Carolina experience is supplemented every day by gifts from students, alumni, faculty, staff and friends of the University. By giving back to your favorite area of campus you are helping ensure the University can support exceptional programs, research, technology, building and innovation.
Q: How does my support make an impact?
A: Student donors join a community of Tar Heels who have invested in the University and made a lasting impact on future generations of Carolina students. A gift of $250 or more places you in the Chancellor’s Clubs 1793 Society and gifts of any amount in the most recent two consecutive academic years make you a Carolina Bell Ringer. Undergraduates who make a gift during each of their four years at Carolina are considered Perfect Student Donors and can maintain their “flawless” status by giving during their first year as a young alumnus.
Q: What can I support with my gift?
A: One of the best things about giving to Carolina is that you can designate your gift to over 7,000 different funds. These funds include academic departments, athletic programs, student organizations, scholarships, research and more. Student giving at Carolina is about YOU. We want to make sure each student can give back to the area that they care about most.
Q: Do gifts of all sizes make a difference?
A: Yes – all gifts make a difference. Even gifts that may seem small combine with similar gifts from tens of thousands of other students, alumni, parents and friends of the University to create a huge impact. Last year, Carolina Annual Giving raised over $7 million from more than 30,000 donors.
