University Advancement & Alumni Relations

Student Giving

Thank you!

We are thankful for the the thousands of donors who help create an unforgettable student experience

Last year:

  • Proud alumni represented over 37% of all donors, collectively providing more than $1.3 million in critical funding
  • 849 graduating students participated in the Chancellor's Challenge Giving Campaign
  • 730 employees gave more than $267,000
  • 1,776 parents contributed over $277,000




Only about 60% of the cost of a UNCW education is covered by tuition, fees and state funding. UNCW donors help close the gap and provide the resources and learning opportunities that students need to succeed.

Gifts to UNCW provide funding for:

  • Classroom Technologies
  • Professional Conferences
  • Business Week
  • Scholarships
  • Expert Speakers
  • Internships
  • Student Research
  • Study Abroad
  • Student Life Programs
