The Office of Development provides the UNC donor community access to information and opportunities designed to connect personal philanthropy with university campaign priorities.
The Campaign for UNC is the university's first comprehensive campaign, and donor engagement is at the heart of the effort. UNC's professional and student development staff work with donors around the country who make gifts at all levels. So whether you are interested in making your first gift to the Campaign or want to create a lasting legacy through an estate bequest, the Office of Development is your starting point to becoming more involved in UNC and the UNC donor community.
As part of UNC's Division of Development & Alumni Relations, the Office of Development is located in the Judy Farr Alumni & Development Center at 1620 Reservoir Road. Staff are in office and available to assist donors during regular business hours Monday - Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., in addition to evening outreach calls made by Student Advancement Ambassadors.

Our Donors Make the Difference
"Not only do we have to make things happen in the here and now; we must do them with an eye to the future. We are temporary, if passionate, stewards of something far greater than ourselves."
Kay Norton, President
"The students here at UNC will change the world, and to do so we need the support of all the donors that have given so much back to the University. That's why I am so proud to be a Bear."
Daniel Heister, Sport & Exercise Science Major
"Generosity is a very real thing. Our alumni have a lot of power. As alumni, if enough of us come together and give, even just a little bit, that really starts to support program building. It's amazing what can happen when we come together."
Patricia Jolly '99
"We may feel as though we can’t make a difference at a small level or with a small gift. However, when many in the UNC community make small monthly gifts, we’re able to change the lives of current and future UNC Bears in real and significant ways."
William Schiffelbein '12
