The Campaign for UNC involves donors in all areas of university need and opportunity. The impact of philanthropic investment is felt immediately in the construction of Campus Commons and long-term in the endowments to fund scholarships, faculty and research.

Without the UNC donor community, students and faculty could not realize the full potential and value of the UNC educational experience.  Thank you for sharing our vision through your generosity.
