You can set up recurring gifts to Carolina via bank draft and have the funds transferred to the University to support one or more areas.

A pledge enables a donor to plan a gift to Carolina and pay it over a period of years, usually five. A pledge payment schedule is created and reminders are sent 90 days prior. The pledge counts in campaign totals and you receive recognition credit as well. Pledges can support one or more funds at the University.
