With less than three weeks left until graduation, we’ve reached approximately 36 percent participation for the senior campaign.
It has been truly gratifying witnessing so many seniors give back to UNC while further advancing the culture of philanthropy and service Carolina is known for. However, we’re still 391 donations away from our goal of 48 percent.
The senior campaign is a way for students to give back to whatever aspect of UNC has shaped their Carolina experience. Students can give to almost any organization on campus, including Dance Marathon, the Eve Carson scholarship, club sports, various departments and professional schools and thousands more.
If we reach our goal of 48 percent, an alumni will make a matching donation of $20,000, and the school will engrave a Tar Heel logo on our class stone, which resides permanently at the Bell Tower.
We know finances can be tight for students, so any donation of $1 or more counts. That means just $1 can help us work toward a $20,000 gift.
UNC’s continued success benefits every graduate, so it’s important for seniors to give back — even if it is just a dollar.
