Each gift makes a difference
In his Welcome remarks for the 2018-19 academic year, Chancellor Franklin D. Gilliam, Jr. observed that UNC Greensboro faces a critical moment in its history. At its own inflection point – a turning point after which we can expect a dramatic change – our University is on the verge of becoming a national model for how a university can blend opportunity, excellence and impact to advance student success and transform communities. Yet it is only through effort, through everyone pulling together in the same direction, that UNC Greensboro’s remarkable, everyday impact will spread.
The ongoing generosity of alumni, corporations, foundations and friends creates motivation for excellence and momentum for change on campus and in our community. The loss of a loved one – whether a spouse, parent, child, sibling or beloved friend and colleague – is devastating, yet many University friends and alumni find opportunities on our campus to pay tribute to those who are dearly missed. Through scholarships, program funds and professorships made in memoriam, the departed live on in students and faculty whose lives are transformed by these gifts, while families and friends left behind find a measure of meaning and peace in making a positive difference in our collective future.
Ways to Give
Annual gifts, reunion contributions, endowed funds, planned gifts, and corporate and foundation grants all make a positive impact that resonates well into the future.
