Gift Planning

Leave a Lasting Legacy

You can leave a lasting legacy through a tax-savvy gift designated to the area most meaningful to you. Visit our new website or contact Amy Shehee, Senior Director of Principal and Planned Gifts, by email or phone at 704-687-0301 to learn about gifts from an estate, gifts that provide income for life, and gifts from creative funding assets.

“Our estate gift allowed us to do more than we ever thought possible. It gives us great comfort and will allow us to provide funding for students in three programs – Architecture, Athletics, and the CRC – close to our hearts. We met at UNC Charlotte and have remained in Charlotte supporting it in many ways. This is a forever gift. We love UNC Charlotte and wanted to do something Special.”
