The UNC School of Government will join the wider University community for GiveUNC on March 30, 2021. GiveUNC is Carolina’s annual one-day giving event, convening alumni, faculty, staff, students, and friends in support of an array of University programs and initiatives.

GiveUNC begins at 12 a.m. on March 30. The School will seek to raise $90,000 from a total of 300 individual donations. Donors may direct their gifts to the School itself as well as to the Master of Public Administration program, which will raise funds for the David N. Ammons Scholarship Endowment, named in honor of the longtime School faculty member and former MPA program director.

Gifts to the School of any amount will help unlock an additional $60,000 in challenge funds set by friends and supporters. This includes challenges that match gifts dollar-for-dollar, challenges based on gift totals, and challenges based on total funds raised. All gifts make a difference, no matter the size.

“The School of Government is truly ‘a place like no other’ thanks to its incredible 90-year legacy of service and support in North Carolina,” said Jen Willis, associate dean for development at the School. “Every GiveUNC gift makes a difference for the School and its mission.”

As the nation’s largest university-based local government training, advisory, and research organization, the School seeks to improve the lives of North Carolinians by engaging in practical scholarship that helps public officials and citizens understand and improve state and local government. The School was founded in 1931 and is proud to celebrate its 90th anniversary in 2021.
