How does faculty and staff giving make a difference?

You already go above and beyond in many ways through your work — giving is just another way. 

Gifts to NC State function like any other charitable donations to organizations such as places of worship, health care providers, medical research organizations, arts organizations, youth groups and scores of other worthy causes. The commitment of the NC State community is a strong vote of confidence in the future of our university.

Do I have freedom to direct my gift as I wish?

Absolutely — you can support any area of the university that interests you. In recent years, faculty and staff have made a particularly strong impact in the following areas:

  • College of Veterinary Medicine All Gifts Great and Small Fund
  • Arts NC State Enhancement Fund
  • Student Emergency Fund
  • Feed the Pack Food Pantry
  • Extraordinary Opportunity Scholarship Initiative
  • Employee Dependent’s Tuition Scholarship

What is the Employee Dependent’s Tuition Scholarship?

The NC State Employee Dependent’s Tuition Scholarship is offered to full-time undergraduate students enrolled at NC State pursuing their first degree who are dependent children of full-time employees of NC State University. Up to $2,000 annually for a maximum of eight semesters at NC State is available for each eligible student. The scholarship is being funded through ongoing university and private support, which has helped us grant more than 1,100 awards through this program so far. Annual gifts supplement endowment earnings to ensure funding will be available for each eligible student. Learn more about eligibility and qualifications.

I can only make a small gift ― will it really make a difference?

Yes, your gift really does make a difference. With so many unexpected and urgent needs all across campus, every gift, no matter the size, helps our university do more for our students and our state. Ten gifts of $50 could provide an emergency fund grant to a student. Five gifts of $20 can help Feed the Pack Food Pantry buy 40 pounds of fresh spinach.

You can also consider a simple and easy monthly payroll deduction to make your gift more manageable. A gift as small as $10 a month in payroll deduction equals $120 per year. A gift of $83.34 per month equals $1,000 per year and makes you a Chancellor’s Circle member.

How can I make a gift in honor or memory of someone?

Making your gift in honor of someone special or in memory of a loved one is a wonderful way to ensure your gift to NC State is even more meaningful. Be sure to note the person’s name and include the name and address of the person you would like to be notified of your gift. We do not mention the gift amount in gift notifications.
