Carolina receives generous support from individual alumni and friends, as well as corporations and foundations. Donors have numerous options to make their gift in a way that best suits their financial circumstances.
Donors can designate their gift to support a particular area or make what’s known as an unrestricted gift, which allows the University to choose how to use the funds. Gifts can support endowments or be expendable. Endowment gifts are invested to provide income to Carolina in perpetuity, with principal generating income each year; expendable gifts are used in their entirety to help cover our near-term needs.
