Major Gifts

These significant contributions (generally $25,000 or more, which may be paid over five years) are often used to create endowed funds for the Graduate School. Major gifts create long-term financial stability for the Graduate School and allows the Graduate School to assist students through merit based and need based fellowships.  Naming opportunities are also available for graduate student Merit Fellowships, Need-Based Fellowships, Veteran Fellowships, Research Funding, and other opportunities.  For more information contact Mark Colone.

Planned Giving

Many UNC Charlotte alumni, friends and donors choose to support the University's work through planned gifts, which include gifts of marketable securities; estate gifts through a bequest in a will or trust; charitable gift annuities or charitable remainder trusts that provide a lifetime income stream to the donor; and other gifts of real estate or tax-deferred retirement assets.  Planned gifts provide financial flexibility and various tax benefits. Planned gifts also provide an effective means of financial stewardship, redirecting money to needs that would otherwise become lost to estate, capital gains or income taxes. Because a planned gift requires careful consideration of a donor's personal, financial and charitable goals and desires, we encourage you to consult with your financial, tax or legal adviser.  For more information on planned gifts, please visit the University's Planned Giving web page.

Personal EDr. Craig Brownxperience at UNC Charlotte:

I was recruited to UNC Charlotte to play soccer from my home in Somers, New York.  I chose the program for many reasons, but it was the people I met here, in the Belk College of Business and within the Department of Athletics, that made a difference for me.  The Economics program prepared me for my doctoral work.  My soccer experience was important for me and I was glad to be part of team success.  The high level of competition taught me how to manage and lead teams. 

Why I continue to give to UNC Charlotte:

Charlotte has a young Graduate School, so this is a way to help students who are preparing for the rigors of advanced study and enhance my Alma Mater's program at the same time.  UNC Charlotte gave me so much. I am glad to give back.   I am very proud of the doctoral program.  I wish it was available when I was enrolled at the University.
