5 things to know about Giving Day

Wednesday, March 2 is UNC Kenan-Flagler Giving Day! Here’s what you need to know.


Your gift will automatically be doubled.
A group of generous donors have pledged to match gifts made on March 2 up to $50,000 – and rumor has it that more matching gifts will be announced soon. Your gift will help us maximize this opportunity and make an even greater impact for current and future UNC Kenan-Flagler students.

Your gift will count towards your Class Campaign.
If you’re a member of the Class of 2016, you might be considering waiting until graduation to contribute to your Class Campaign – but here’s why you shouldn’t:

Gifts made on Giving Day (March 2) will be counted towards your Class Campaign and will be doubled thanks to the aforementioned matching gift. Don’t delay – give today!

Your support matters – and it all adds up.
Simply put, the world-class education and experience we receive at UNC Kenan-Flagler would not be possible without support from students, alumni, faculty, staff and friends of the School.

Every gift of every size makes an impact – and it all adds up. Here’s a few examples:

  • 10 gifts of $200 provide a study abroad scholarship for an Undergraduate Business student.
  • 9 gifts of $100 provide the loaner laptops you borrow when your computer (inevitably) crashes during exams.
  • 5 gifts of $100 provide access to the latest interview software to help Master of Accounting students improve their job prospects.
  • 4 gifts of $100 provide the scanner you use to upload your resume and cover letter.
  • 2 gifts of $75 make it possible for an MBA student to participate in skill-building activities on Leadership Day – and that’s the cost for one student.
  • 5 gifts of $10 provide 500 pages of print credit for student assignments.

Giving back is a time-honored tradition.
Alum Jeff Tucker (MBA ’00) said it best:

“Everything I gained at UNC Kenan-Flagler was the result of someone else giving back to the School in some way. As alums, we’re really duty-bound to continue that tradition.

It’s up to us to pay it forward to ensure that future students will have access to the same world-class experience we do.

Giving back increases your ROI.
Giving back is one of the simplest and most important things we can do to increase the ROI on our education. Every member of our community contributes to the strength of our brand and the depth and breadth of our network.

When you give to The Fund for UNC Kenan-Flagler, your donation goes directly toward supporting our students, faculty and programs and is applied to the areas of greatest need at the School – such as increased scholarship and fellowship support that helps us draw the best and brightest scholars to Chapel Hill.
