School of Government Foundation
The School depends on private gifts and revenue from courses and publications for approximately half of its annual operating income.
The School of Government Foundation was established in 1996 to help strengthen financial support for faculty teaching and research, statewide education programs, student scholarships, staff development, and general operating needs. A Board of Directors representing the School’s diverse state and local government clients, the Master of Public Administration program, and major supporters oversees the operation of the Foundation.
Foundation endowments are managed through the UNC Management Company and Investment Fund.
