Why Annual Gifts are Important

  • Annual gifts add up and go to work immediately to support our students as they gain world-class insights and hands-on training.
  • Annual gifts help close the gap between the cost of tuition and the actual amount each student pays in tuition and fees, maintaining NC State’s ranking as a “best value” college by the Princeton Review.
  • Annual gifts fund day-to-day operations that help protect NC State from unexpected challenges or contingencies.
  • Annual gifts are the most direct way to create positive impact on the rich educational experience that touches the entire NC State community.
