Message from the Chancellor

These final few months of the Think and Do the Extraordinary Campaign are inspiring us to look back at our accomplishments as a university community. So much of what has happened over the course of the Campaign has resulted from the vision of our donors, and so much of our future impact will be powered by you, those who have created endowments. Whether your endowment was established during the Campaign or earlier, you have made a lasting change at NC State, and we are so grateful.

Since the launch of the Campaign, we have raised almost $1 billion in endowed funds. This could not have happened without your partnership. I’m so pleased to share that this year, our endowment was valued at an extraordinary $1.95 billion — more than tripling its size since 2012.

Such a strong financial outcome after a year of uncertainty underscores the importance of endowed support like yours. We are able to rely on our robust endowment for life-changing student scholarships, transformative research, impactful programming, career-strengthening faculty enrichment and so much more. We remain steadfast in our work and our mission, bolstered by the stability that endowed funds provide.

Our Campaign may be closing, but our work continues. With your generosity, we are better positioned than ever before to expand extraordinary opportunities and experiences to promising scholars and to undertake meaningful teaching and research that makes a difference within our community, across the state of North Carolina and far beyond.

Thank you for a record-setting year. And even more, thank you for investing so generously in our students, our university and our future. What lies ahead is sure to be extraordinary.

$1.95 Billion Endowment
