Corporate and Foundation Support

UNC is a leader in fostering effective industry partnerships. We work to advance institutional priorities through generous partnerships with corporations and foundations; whose mission, goals, and philanthropic priorities align with UNC. While these partnerships reflect a variety of funding arrangements for research and direct service programming, three common opportunities exist for philanthropic support: corporate support, foundation support, and corporate sponsored events. Contact us to explore how we can develop an innovative and mutually beneficial philanthropic partnership with UNC.

Gifts of Personal Property

To make a gift of personal property to the university, also known as a gift-in-kind, first contact the office that plans to use your item or property, such as the Library for a donation of books, or the School of Music for a donation of musical instruments. The home office will coordinate with UNC's Development team and the UNC Foundation. If you are unsure of where to begin, please contact University Advancement at 970-351-2251.
