Faculty and Staff Giving
The support and dedication of employees is what makes this University great. Hundreds of faculty and staff provide financial contributions each year to enhance the excellence of UNC and the preparation of its students. Together through philanthropy, Team UNC makes a lasting impact on the experience of students and their colleagues.
The Fall Team UNC Campaign is underway! Make a gift during the month of September to an area of campus important to you. Your gift makes a difference for the people on campus, and will bring us closer to our team goal - we will unlock a $15,000 challenge grant for student scholarships if we reach 300 donors during this Fall Campaign. Every donor giving at any amount counts!
Last year Team UNC donors provided over $370,000 to support 95 different university programs and scholarship funds.
Put Your Giving to Work
When you join Team UNC, you join the generous faculty and staff who support UNC every day through their work and their philanthropy. Gifts may support any Campaign Priority or campus program, including the offices and programs that you are involved in every day.
Where to Give
You see first-hand the needs of our students, our programs and our facilities. You can support any area of campus that you would like to enhance with your gifts.
How to Give
The easiest way to give is via payroll deduction, but you may make a gift in any number of ways. Let's get started:
When to Give
The official Team UNC Campaign happens each fall, but you can join colleagues with a gift made at any time. Get involved when you make an annual gift and your contribution immediately goes to work impacting students, programs and priorities.
Get Involved in Campaigns and Programs
Annual giving programs happen throughout the year. Programs offer you opportunities to talk with current students, share your appreciation for campus colleagues and join the call for our Bear Tuesday day of giving. With so much going on, there is always an opportunity to connect and get involved.

Why I Give to Team UNC
"I really appreciate the student body at UNC. They are open to new ways of seeing and being enriched by the beauty of diversity. I am always learning from them as I transfer my passion and love of Anthropology to them."
Sally McBeth - Team UNC Donor
Professor and Chair, Department of Anthropology
"I support Team UNC because I want to make sure our students have the resources they need to persist and complete their education. Others invested in my undergraduate degree and this is my opportunity to pay their generosity forward."
Beckie Croissant - Team UNC Donor
Student Service Specialist, College of Natural and Health Sciences
"I was thinking that my small gifts didn’t matter much. It really touched my heart, though, when students came to my office to thank me for “making their dreams come true”! It brought tears to my eyes! Now, I am doubling my giving."
Margaret Kinney - Team UNC Donor
Accounting Technician, School of Nursing
