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. Homecoming reunites the many generations of our University. With more than 20,000 students and 120,000 alumni from a wide array of backgrounds, this important event celebrates how far our graduates have come and how far our current students will go. No one is more excited for Homecoming than one special group. First-year alumni – graduated in Fall 2017 or Spring 2018 – return to their alma mater with fresh memories and appreciation. After a few months in the working world, they look back with profound gratitude on their University, the peers and faculty who supported them and the donors who bolstered their education. What they found during their studies, they have carried with them into the next phase of their lives, but they know they didn’t do it alone.
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.
The UNCG Alumni Association seeks to draw each and every graduate into a lifelong connection with UNCG and to inspire alumni to serve and advocate on behalf of their alma mater.

Why They Give
The Kaitlin E. Morelli Endowed Scholarship in Nursing, established by Kaitlin’s parents and brother, supports the aspirations of future nurses.
“We hope this scholarship will help other students realize their dream … We believe Kaitlin’s spirit will live on every time a nursing school graduate goes out into the world and shares their gifts and the skills they acquired in the nursing program.”
