UNC Kenan-Flagler Business School

Cornerstone Society

UNC Kenan-Flagler Business School

Donors qualify for the Cornerstone Society with an unrestricted, expendable gift of $25,000 to the Fund for UNC Kenan-Flagler. Cornerstone Society donors provide critical funds that enable the dean to pursue the School’s highest priorities. These gifts supply bridge funding to the dean while he works to grow our endowment as part of the next University campaign.

Membership in the Cornerstone Society also qualifies donors for the Dean’s Circle at the Presidents level. Couples’ gifts are combined and corporate matching gifts are included.

We need the support of our Cornerstone Society members in order to continue providing exceptional educational opportunities to our students and faculty. The collective power of these gifts has an immediate and tangible impact and enables UNC Kenan-Flagler to sustain its reputation as one of the best business schools in the world.
