Wolfpack Women in Philanthropy connects women in the NC State community to one another — across colleges, constituencies, backgrounds and generations — and to opportunities to support the university. There are many ways that women’s time, talents, treasure and testimony can make a difference for students, faculty and programs.

Our activities include:

  • advocating for greater diversity on the university’s volunteer leadership boards;
  • introducing women to programs and initiatives across campus;   
  • educating women about ways to make financial gifts and the importance of such gifts;
  • participating in major university events such as Day of Giving, Pack Appreciation Day, Giving Tuesday, and Red and White Week; 
  • linking women with additional volunteer or advancement activities at the university;
  • shining a light on women’s contributions and achievements at NC State;
  • and cultivating awareness among internal and external stakeholders about the importance of a holistic fundraising and engagement culture that embraces everyone. 

Wolfpack Women in Philanthropy connects with experts in the field of women’s philanthropy and with similar higher-education programs nationwide as well as with staff at NC State. The group has fun together too.
