Making an impact, together.

Tucked away in the Blue Ridge Mountains, UNC Asheville prepares the next generation of leaders and productive citizens to serve North Carolina and the nation.

The Division of University Advancement works to increase the margin of excellence by building relationships that foster advocacy, support, and investment in UNC Asheville. We are hard at work imagining a bold, bright world for our students and our community.

When you support UNC Asheville, you help our students reach new vistas where the future is a frontier—vast and full of opportunity.

Together, we can make a profound impact on UNC Asheville students and on the world.

Diversity Engagement

Inspired by the advocacy of students, alumni, faculty, and staff, this scholarship supports students from traditionally underrepresented backgrounds who are committed to promoting diversity and inclusion on campus.

Areas of Greatest Need

Gifts to the areas of greatest need (UNC Asheville Fund) enable the University to be nimble from providing additional services to students in need to advancing exciting new research opportunities.

Academic Departments

Just like the UNC Asheville fund, when you give to your home department, you support the next generation of Bulldogs through scholarships, internship funding, research opportunities, and outreach initiatives.

Bulldog Athletics Fund

More than 75% of our student-athletes receive support from the Athletic Scholarship Fund to continue their education at UNC Asheville. These scholarships are vital for their ongoing success – on the field and in the classroom.

Student Emergency Fund

From providing off-campus housing to healthy meals to counseling services, the Student Emergency fund enables our faculty and staff to quickly respond to student emergencies and needs during times of crisis.
