Team UNC: Faculty and Staff Giving

The support and dedication of our employees is what makes this university great.
In addition to their time and talent, each year, hundreds of faculty, staff, and faculty emeriti provide financial contributions to enhance the excellence of UNC and the success of its students. Together through philanthropy, Team UNC makes a lasting impact on the UNC community. We are humbled by the generosity of our campus community and for all you do for UNC.


On Friday, April 14, 2023, UNC employees are invited to join Bear Country on #BearsGiveBack to make a gift to the area of the university that is most meaningful to them. Gifts from UNC employees on April 14 will be matched 1:1 by a generous anonymous donor (cap at $15,000 total; $500/donor). Additional information will be shared with employees via email as Bears Give Back approaches.


Get Involved in Campaigns and Programs

Annual giving programs happen throughout the year. Programs offer you opportunities to talk with current students, share your appreciation for campus colleagues and join the call for Bears Give Back, UNC's annual day of giving. With so much going on, there is always an opportunity to connect and get involved.

Why Team UNC?

“I've seen the Summer Enrichment Program work as both an alumna and a faculty member. This opportunity should be accessible to every kid who wants to participate.”

Nancy Matchett

"I support Team UNC because I want to make sure our students have the resources they need to persist and complete their education. Others invested in my undergraduate degree and this is my opportunity to pay their generosity forward."

Beckie Croissant

“I give [to the Emergency Relief Fund] to help support those who are trying to gain a great education/college experience while also dealing with challenges in other areas of life. Keep going, you got this!”
