This year has been unlike any that UNC Kenan-Flagler Business School has encountered in our 100-plus years of existence. The worldwide pandemic has arrived at our doorstep, impacting our work and our lives. Together, our community of students, faculty and staff has been resilient in meeting these challenges, but we have not been immune to their impact.
Your support enables us to respond to these challenges and continue to fulfill our commitment to outstanding teaching, research and service.
We need our community more than ever. Donor participation has decreased 30% since the start of the pandemic and gifts of unrestricted dollars decreased by 26%.
Your giving provides us with key sources of revenue that allow us to meet our students’ needs in many different ways, including the support of 444 annually funded scholarships and fellowships. Your gift, regardless of its size, makes an immediate and tangible impact on our students, faculty and programs.
Donor support through the Fund for UNC Kenan-Flagler accounts for 15% our operating budget. These funds offer an essential source of operational revenue and offset potential pandemic-related budget cuts or unforeseen challenges.
There is still time to support UNC Kenan-Flagler before the end of 2020.
