Which area of Carolina means the most to you?
The Office of University Development and class of 2017 marshals encourage seniors to think of an aspect of Carolina that means something to you, a school, center or institute, student organization, scholarship or unit on campus. We hope you choose to support that area and leave your legacy where it means the most to you. Financial gifts by seniors to any University fund are considered participation in the 2017 Senior Campaign for Carolina.
The class of 2017 has set a goal to exceed the class of 2011’s record-breaking 47 percent participation with their average gifts of $20.11. If the class of 2017 achieves it’s 48 percent or better participation goal, a Tar Heel logo will be added to the 2017 Bell Tower stone. Every gift to Carolina helps get the class of 2017 closer to our goal.
48% (or better!)
Where Can I Give?
You can support scholarships, student organizations or a specific school or unit. You name it and there is probably a designated fund for it. Gifts of any size make a difference at Carolina. As a student, you benefit every day from the impact of private gifts that provide:
- Funding for student awards, conference opportunities and study abroad
- Exposure to world-renowned guest lecturers on campus
- Affordable admission to world-class performances and art collections
- Access to unique library collections and subscription-only scholarly journals
- Access to quality education through merit- and need-based scholarships
- New technology and equipment in state-of-the-art classroom and athletic facilities
- And much more
Why Should I Give?
Perhaps in years past you have chosen to support an area of Carolina on your own or through our annual phonathon, Pit days or through the Heelraisers. Perhaps your gift to the Senior Campaign will be your first. Either way, we hope you realize how valuable your gift is, no matter the size.
Annual gifts of all sizes are valuable and help maintain Carolina’s excellence. In the academic year 2014-15, the class of 2015 gave more than $36,500 to UNC. All donors will be recognized in a class of 2017 Student Donor Honor Roll. Donors who give $5 or more to Carolina through the Senior Campaign will receive a class of 2017 decal, only available through the campaign. Those who contribute at least $20.17 will receive their Tar Heel lapel pin to wear at graduation and an invitation to the Senior Donor Luncheon.
How Do I Give?
