Annual Giving at NC State

Every year, your support creates new opportunities for the Wolfpack community to think and do the extraordinary.

Making a Difference Each Year

What if you could help one more student achieve their dream, or one more researcher discover a solution? What if you could create one more incredible educational experience? With your annual gift, you join the most successful campaign in NC State history and your generosity forever changes lives — one at a time.

Every year, annual giving donors remove barriers and open doors by investing in life-changing scholarships, exceptional enhancements to our learning environment and an unparalleled team of faculty and researchers. Your gift helps students fully reach their potential as the leaders of tomorrow, solving grand challenges for our state and world.

It takes a Wolfpack to do the extraordinary.
