#GivingTuesday 2018

This campaign ended on November 27, 2018, but you can still make a gift to University of North Carolina at Asheville by clicking here!

One day. One goal. The entire UNC Asheville community coming together to raise $75,000 for our deserving students. 

#GivingTuesday is an international day of giving back. We invite all UNC Asheville alumni, parents, faculty, staff and friends to be a part of the movement and make a difference for our university by making a gift on November 27.

Last year, our university community contributed $62,432 on #GivingTuesday, the most in UNC Asheville history. If we raise $60,000 this year, it will unlock a $15,000 challenge gift, bringing our total to $75,000 raised in 24 hours – another record-setting day of generosity.

Give back to the area of campus that matters to you. Whether that’s scholarships, athletics, an academic department, or a very specific cause of your choosing, you'll help demonstrate the Bulldog community's dedication to providing the best possible education to UNC Asheville students. That dedication keeps our university ranked among the top public liberal arts colleges in the country, year after year.

Make your gift. Challenge your friends. Talk about it on social media. Send text messages and make phone calls. Encourage everyone you know to support UNC Asheville on #GivingTuesday.

Get your UNC Asheville License Plate

This #GivingTuesday, be one of the first donors to make a gift of $25 or more, and you’ll have the opportunity to be one of the first Bulldogs to get a specialized license plate. Demonstrate your UNC Asheville pride every time you hit the road!
