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. When the COVID-19 pandemic closed campus, many UNCG students found themselves struggling. Some were not sure where they would stay, while others faced increased food insecurity. Friends of the University banded together to assist these students, but as the fall semester approaches, the need for non-academic support continues to rise. Programs such as the Spartan Recovery Program, the Spartan Food Insecurity Fund, and the Student Assistance Fund for Emergencies provide the resources students need to thrive during this time. Gifts to these funds and others ensure our students stay on track with their education.
