Parent Giving Campaign

Parents


Parent donors provide students with unique opportunities that have an impact on their resumés and their future.


Tuition and fees only cover about 30% of a UNCW education which is why private gifts are so important. Last year more than 1,667 parents contributed more than $331,000 to the university.
 

You're invited to join this long-standing tradition by making a gift to any area that is important to your family.

Gifts to the Parent Opportunity Fund support:

We give to help students excel both inside and outside of the classroom. We know our son, John, will have a bright future because of the experiences he's had at UNCW."  - Mike and Virginia Anthony

UNCW Parents Council

Seahawk parents who contribute $1,000 or more in a fiscal year are invited to participate in the UNCW Parents Council. Members host summer send-off parties and join campus celebrations with their student and university leadership.

UNCW Legacies at the Pinning Ceremony

UNCW Legacies

Being a UNCW legacy is about carrying on your Seahawk family tradition. A student who has a parent, grandparent, or sibling who has attended UNCW is a legacy. Families are invited to a Pinning Ceremony in the fall and the Future Seahawks Legacy Reception on Seahawk Preview Day.
