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. Class Gifts are among the most meaningful and important contributions made by our alumni. While simultaneously celebrating the class members’ years on campus and their accomplishments afterwards, Class Gifts also create an enduring impact on our university through improving our campus, providing critical support for programs and faculty, and bolstering the education of our students. Foust Park, as old as the university itself, is home to several gifts that commemorate the education and contributions of courageous women. As we prepare to welcome the Class of 1968 into the Vanguard, we reflect on the spirits of the Class of 1917, the Class of 1922 and the Class of 1957, forever captured by the humble fixtures gracing Foust Park today.
