Development Office

At UNCG, we embrace our mission of being a public research university for the 21st century that makes a difference in the lives of students and the communities we serve. In partnering with donors and friends, the Office of Development has a unique opportunity to support and advance that mission while helping you make an important impact based on your personal vision for giving.

UNCG is known as a “state-supported institution,” yet the University depends on private dollars to support more than half of our operating needs. Your generous donations — in any amount — are especially critical given the economic climate we’ve faced in recent years.

Many of the things that make UNCG special — our beautiful campus, accessible professors, and wide array of challenging academic programs — are supported by private gifts from our alumni, parents, community members, faculty, staff, and friends of the University.

Private gifts make an enormous difference in the lives of our students. Your gifts create undergraduate scholarships, graduate fellowships, professorships to recruit and retain excellent faculty, and program funds to support new initiatives and exciting ventures.

Every gift makes a difference — 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 major gift officers and staff in the UNCG Office of Development understand the University’s needs. We seek ways to learn how your priorities can create a mutually beneficial opportunity for you and UNCG.

We are happy to talk to you further about giving to UNCG. Please contact our office at 336.334.5677 or our toll-free number 1.877.641.8276, or contact one of our staff.

Thank you for recognizing your important role in helping inspire new possibilities for our students, faculty, and communities.
