Students with thank you notes

A record-setting Believe In The G

Thanks a million!

During UNCG’s Believe in the G annual day of giving on March 15-16, alumni, students, faculty, staff, parents, and friends banded together to make a huge impact.

A record 1,802 donors contributed a total of $1,077,204 to the UNCG schools, units, and programs they care about most. Those figures make Believe in the G 2022 the most successful giving day in University history.

The impressive amount raised represents a nearly 30% increase from last year’s Believe in the G and a 57% increase in the number of donors who contributed!

Areas with the most donor participation were:
1. College of Arts & Sciences
2. Health & Human Sciences
3. Student Affairs
4. Athletics
5. University-wide (general) scholarships

Over 40 match and challenge gifts incentivized giving by allowing dollars to go farther. In total, $393,934 additional dollars were “unlocked” by contributions made toward matches and challenges.

Spartan Squad Ambassadors, those willing to use their personal networks to spread the word about Believe in the G, raised $21,459 through their outreach.

Undergraduate alumni from the Class of 1941 through Class of 2021 participated in Believe in the G. The classes with the most donor participation were:
1. 1971
2. 2016
3. 1965
4. 2015
5. 1968 / 2012

This year, student giving grew by nearly 1,000% thanks to a successful Student Philanthropy event held at Moran Commons on the first day of Believe in the G. In addition to contributing a total of $2,632, students also wrote 1,500 thank you cards to be mailed to Believe in the G donors.
