Special Projects

The UNC Charlotte Annual Giving program meets the immediate needs of our students, providing vital operating funds for priority university initiatives, much-needed assistance for student scholarships and the student experience, and support for the faculty through several special projects.

Green with gratitude

Green with Gratitude is a 49er effort established to educate students on the importance and impact of philanthropy. All students have been been touched by philanthropy — from renovated classrooms and financial aid, to cultural events and campus beautification. Day after day, private support is a vital part of a 49er education.

Green with Gratitude


Held annually, #NinerNationGives is a 49-hour digital fundraising event for 49er alumni. Alumni both here in Charlotte and globally can show their Niner pride by making a gift to their favorite college or unit at the University, wearing green, and spreading the word via social media using #NinerNationGives.



You may remember the past faculty/staff campaign as Giving Green. We have decided to replace Giving Green and combine the faculty/staff campaign into #NinerNationGives for maximum impact, participation and fun! 

Faculty/Staff Campaign


UNC Charlotte's crowdfunding projects empower students, faculty, staff, and alumni to raise awareness and support for specific projects affecting the campus community. Have a project that needs funding? Sign up here for the next round of crowdfunding projects.



A dedicated team of students makes calls to the 49er family, giving campus updates and asking for support. Contact Marcus Orchard, our call center manager, with questions.
