Faculty & Staff Giving
The support and dedication of employees is what makes this University great.
Each year, hundreds of faculty, staff, and faculty emeriti provide financial contributions to enhance the excellence of UNC and the preparation of its students. Together through philanthropy, Team UNC makes a lasting impact on the UNC community.
We are humbled by the generosity of our campus community and for all you do for UNC.
Along with many UNC employees, UNC's Student Advancement Ambassadors transitioned to remote work this year. As part of their onboarding, they made videos from their home workstations to answer some questions about what UNC means to them.
Your support is truly appreciated, especially by students like Political Science major Mikilynna Taufete'e, who says:
"I would love to give my scholarship donors the biggest hug and express how grateful I am because I wouldn't be here if I didn't have scholarship support. I am just so grateful, and I would want to tell them how much I appreciate them. It makes me feel like I'm worth enough to be here."

Put Your Giving to Work
When you make a gift through the Team UNC campaign, you join the generous faculty and staff who support UNC every day through their philanthropy. Gifts may support any campus program, including the offices and programs that you are involved in every day.
Where to Give
You see firsthand the opportunities and priorities of our students, programs and facilities. You are encouraged to support whatever area(s) of campus are the most meaningful to you.
How to Give
The easiest way to give is via payroll deduction, but you may make a gift in a number of ways. Let's get started:
When to Give
The official Team UNC Campaign happens annually, but you can join your colleagues with a gift at any time. When you make an annual gift, your contribution immediately goes to work impacting UNC's students, programs and priorities.
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 Emerita, 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
Senior Student Services 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."
Maggie Kinney - Team UNC Donor
