You have the power to help our students

Annual gifts to NC State University reach across our University to help deliver extraordinary opportunities for learning and discovery to our students and faculty.

What is Annual Giving?

What is Annual Giving?

Annual Giving is the most direct way to create positive impact on the rich educational experience that touches the entire NC State community.  Gifts from alumni, parents, faculty, staff, friends and students increase scholarships, strengthen curricula, fund community service, enrich the library and sponsor the arts – all of which improve the educational experience for students every year.

Chancellor’s Circle

NC State University is proud and honored to annually recognize our alumni, parents, faculty, staff and friends who, through their leadership gifts, provide the largest impact on our University. Through the Chancellor’s Circle, we celebrate your generosity.

parents fund


Parents have contributed over $1.65 million to support the student experience since the inception of the Parent’s Fund in 1993. Your support will help NC State continue to provide excellent opportunities for your sons and daughters, and students to come.


Students play an important part in NC State’s success. Seniors give because they know they benefited from the generosity of those who came before them and because they want to celebrate all that NC State has meant to them. Find out more about the Senior Class Gift.
