Giving Bearnanza

The second annual event ran from Bear Tuesday, December 1 and ended on Colorado Gives Day, December 8.

Giving Bearnanza is an annual, one-week fundraising event that invites our Bear Community to come together and support what UNC is all about: the determination, dedication, and success of our students.

We are continuing to finalize totals and would like to thank everyone who made a gift to the programs and resources that support current and future Bears!

Make sure to check back to see the how the Bear Community came together for this week-long celebration of philanthropy.
