Giving Opportunities

There is no better way to show appreciation for an act of kindness than to say "thank you!" As chair of the UNCW Department of Music, I have been saying thank you often in recent years because of the growing number of the department's alumni and friends who have pledged their support to us. These donors realize how important private support is to the life of a university and are doing what they can to expand the department's resources.

Gifts to the Department of Music help supply equipment for classrooms, support student services and extracurricular activities, as well as help provide needed scholarship support for our students. It is this help and generosity that allows us to provide a meaningful education for UNCW music students, in addition to high-quality musical presentations for the Wilmington community.

Finally, in appreciation of our donors' support, the department recognizes each donor on the back page of every program of the season in which the donation was made. Also, each donor will be placed on our mailing list and will receive the department's semi-annual newsletter, Notes, in order to keep you informed of the latest departmental activities and events.

We hope you join us in support of the UNCW Department of Music. Your act of kindness goes a long way toward assuring a bright future for UNCW and the Department of Music.


Dr. Frank Bongiorno, Chair
Department of Music
