Helping Heels Fund

This campaign ended on June 30, 2020, but you can still make a gift to The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill by clicking here!

The world is a different place than it was just a short while ago. That impact is felt by each of us, including the more than 800 Tar Heel student-athletes who represent our University. Carolina Athletics, The Rams Club, and the University today are launching the Helping Heels Fund – a crowdfunding campaign that gives fans the opportunity to provide financial assistance to Carolina student-athletes who are facing extreme hardships as a result of the pandemic.

Gifts made through the Helping Heels Fund will directly assist student-athletes and their families with medical bills and other necessary expenses – such as groceries, toiletries, technology for online classes and remote learning and training, and more. Gifts will supplement Carolina’s existing Student-Athlete Assistance Fund that addresses many of these same challenges facing our student-athletes.

Carolina Athletics is proud of the outpouring of concern for our student-athletes and the questions about how we can best support them in this trying time. As we know, Tar Heel student-athletes are a disciplined and resilient group, but these trying times have created unique challenges for these young men and women. The Helping Heels Fund is an opportunity for those of you who are able to help take care of these important members of our Carolina Family.
