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, in our city, and across our state. College is where we often meet important people in our lives: best friends, well-respected mentors, and future colleagues. Some people even meet their life partners on UNCG’s campus. For these alumni couples, UNCG was the backdrop of their romance, often made available to them through donor generosity. And as they pass through our halls and into the lives they create together, many couples hope they too can provide such opportunities for companionship and growth to future students – ain’t that just grand?
