UNCW students are sharing the university’s story with alumni, parents and friends as part of the ANNUAL GIVING PHONATHON. Last year student callers encouraged more than 7,300 donors to pledge more than $466,000 to the university. In this time of severe budget cuts, these donations are not for extras. The gifts are used for library materials, classroom equipment, computers, software and other technology, campus life programs, athletics and much more to maintain the quality, educational experience that has become a tradition at UNCW. Please consider making your gift online.
