Each gift makes a difference

In his 2017 “State of the Campus” address, Chancellor Franklin D. Gilliam Jr. said UNCG is poised to enter an “era of Giant Steps,” anchored through transformation — student transformation, knowledge transformation and regional transformation. A university that recognizes its role in the shared place and fate of the city, state and nation, UNCG is ready to step boldly into the public spotlight as a top school of choice in the Southeast.

The ongoing generosity of alumni, corporations, foundations and friends worldwide creates access to excellence and opportunity for students, faculty, staff and the greater community. UNCG boasts one of the most beautiful campuses in our state. Across its 260 acres and among its more than 90 buildings sprout beautiful flowers, blossoming trees and rolling green expanses. Undoubtedly, UNCG’s gardens are the favorite spots of students, faculty and staff. Hidden between buildings and standing boldly along main thoroughfares, these gardens offer a moment’s repose to all who come across them. Many of these gardens wouldn’t exist without the generosity of thoughtful donors. From a graduating class on the cusp of World War II to a husband celebrating his wife’s love of music and nature, donors have created the quiet, delightful spaces we love – with the hope that their enchantment will endure for decades to come.
