Annual Giving

The UNC Charlotte Annual Giving program provides a strong foundation for private support at our university. The program provides vital operating funds for priority university initiatives, while also generating much-needed assistance to improve and enhance our academic programs and departments. Gifts received through the annual giving program, whether designated or unrestricted, provide the necessary resources for the growing needs of our university. The program runs July 1 through June 30. 

Faculty & Staff Campaign

The UNC Charlotte Faculty and Staff Annual Campaign provides much-needed support to enhance the university’s valuable services and unique opportunities. From student scholarships and faculty teaching awards, to travel grants and technology upgrades, your gifts make a difference.


UNC Charlotte’s Telefundraising program operates annually from August through May as our student callers contact alumni and parents requesting annual support. The program provides an ideal environment for alumni and parents to have one-on-one contact with current students from various majors, programs and backgrounds. Our student team is comprised of approximately 25 UNC Charlotte students who make calls weekly, Sunday through Thursday.
