It’s official: You set records. Thanks to the generosity of the University Libraries’ community, GiveUNC 2021 was the Library’s most successful giving day yet.
This year, 184 generous donors made 191 gifts totaling $162,427. That’s a 300% increase in funds raised over last year—funds that make it possible for the University Libraries to fuel the dreams and aspirations of students, faculty and researchers.
We are especially gratified that 37 people chose to give to the University Libraries for the first time on March 30.
Your gifts helped unlock five important challenge grants totaling $119,500, including $100,000 from an “inspired alumna” in support of the Library’s reckoning and social justice initiatives. Forty-seven Library staff made donations.
On a day like no other, you ensured that the University Libraries will remain a place like no other. Thank you!
