Students First Campaign - Final Report

UNCG Students First Campaign

The Students First Campaign Exceeds $115 million – thanks to our generous supporters!


On June 30, 2009, history was made at UNCG. That day marked the official conclusion of the Students First Campaign, UNCG's most successful fundraising initiative ever. Raising more than $35 million over our original goal of $78.2 million, the campaign was a five-year endeavor that will dramatically increase opportunities for student achievement. How? By creating more scholarships, enhancing academic programming and providing resources to the faculty who help educate the next generation.

Now, thanks to the generous support of campaign leadership and the approximately 22,000 donors who brought us to $115,346,891, UNCG can demonstrate our Students First promise with even greater significance.

Because of your support, more deserving students will be able to pursue their academic and career goals at UNCG. And what they will find as members of our campus community is that UNCG is a great place where great people are making great things happen. Our vibrant learning environment inspires minds and empowers students to be successful.

Especially in these daunting economic times, partnering with our alumni, friends and corporate partners to ensure a brighter future means a great deal. Your support helps us to continuously build a university where opportunity, innovation and community engagement thrive.

As we move forward, UNCG remains committed to redefining the public research university for the 21st century and making a difference in the lives of students and the communities we serve.

Thank you for valuing our goals and our vision and making them your own.
