UNC Kenan-Flagler’s Signature Community Service Initiative

Download our Business Cares Impact Report

Business Cares, announced in 2014, is a strategic and innovative program of philanthropic support for local non-profit organizations. It harnesses both the talents and resources of the UNC Kenan-Flagler community to make a greater impact on our local community and the organizations we strive to serve.

The initiative focuses on three charities focused on children's health for 2014-15: UNC Children’s Hospital, Ronald McDonald House of Chapel Hill and Super Cooper’s Little Red Wagon Foundation. It will support them through fundraising, using the business expertise of faculty, staff and students to help them achieve their missions, and collaborating on projects on-site and at the Business School. The Business Cares golf tournament – the prime fundraiser for the initiative – will be held in May in Chapel Hill.

But community service is not new at UNC Kenan-Flagler, where we shape leaders who have the courage to do what's right and the knowledge to make it happen. We identified community as one of our core values based on a long tradition of service at the oldest public university in the United States and at the Business School, founded in 1919.
