Each gift makes a difference



During troubled times, we must remember that our future is inextricably intertwined with others. At UNC Greensboro, our belief in shared fate and place has led to quick responses to unprecedented challenges, as well as a willingness to dig deep into ourselves to find and hold hope. Dedicated faculty and staff stand ready to support students as they prepare for uncertainties in the upcoming academic year – and our donors offer optimism and encouragement with their support.

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. For more than 70 years, UNCG nurses have provided high-quality, compassionate care to patients in North Carolina and beyond. In 2020, students and alumni of the School of Nursing turn their attention to the COVID-19 pandemic, putting themselves at risk by committing time and talent to protect our communities. Yet without the support of donors, many of them would not have had access to the excellent instruction and clinical experience that enable UNCG nurses to be critical frontline defenders. Donors ensure our nurses embody the University’s motto of “Service” as they face new challenges every day.
