NC State Day of Giving

Since 2019, this annual 24-hour celebration has brought our university together for #GivingPack and giving forward.

100 NC Counties Represented in 2023

Donors in 13 Countries Took Part in Day of Giving

50 States Joined in #GivingPack in 2023

Each year, for 24 hours, the Wolfpack comes together on NC State Day of Giving to achieve more: creating greater opportunities, providing broader educational access, fostering bolder visions and advancing innovative research.

Since 2019, we’ve shown what the Pack can do in 24 hours. We know we’re stronger together, and that now is always the right time to make a difference. So many members of the Pack have shared their stories and together, we’re giving forward, helping others write their own new chapters.

3,340 Donors Gave More Than Once

Day of Giving continues to inspire our Pack give back again and again.

1,485 Donors Have Supported Every Day of Giving

#GivingPack is an annual tradition.

#GivingPack, Creating Impact

Day of Giving gifts go to work quickly, often making a difference as soon as the next academic year. In 2023:

  • The NC State Veterinary Hospital assisted clients with treatment costs for more than 85 companion animals, thanks to a generous matching gift from a donor.
  • The College of Education granted 17 scholarships and travel awards to graduate students.
  • Wellness and Recreation awarded two Friend and Family Scholarships.
  • The Study Abroad Office was able to double the number of students receiving scholarships for the upcoming Spring 2024 academic term compared to Spring 2023.

We know the money we donate is really going to support all of the programs at NC State. And it was fun – late at night, seeing those last donations trickle in and trying to be the last one to give, or participating in one of the Day of Giving challenges.
