Community Service

Business Cares

UNC Kenan-Flagler’s Signature Community Service Initiative

UNC Kenan-Flagler Business School shapes leaders who put people first.

Business Cares is an innovative community service program that advances strategic philanthropic support for local nonprofit organizations. Launched in 2014, the initiative harnesses the talents and resources of UNC Kenan-Flagler to meaningfully impact our local community and the organizations we strive to serve. Business Cares is just one way we put our core value of Community into practice.

Business Cares works with three children’s health charities: UNC Children’s HospitalRonald McDonald House of Chapel Hill and Super Cooper’s Little Red Wagon Foundation. We support these important organizations in a variety of ways:

  • Fundraising
  • Offering the business expertise of faculty, staff and students to help each organization achieve its mission
  • Collaborating on projects on-site and at the Business School

The Business Cares golf tournament – the primary fundraiser for the initiative – is held in May in Chapel Hill.
