Supporting Asheville's university.

As friends of the university, you make such a difference! Your financial gifts support students, honor your loved ones, enrich our community and leave a legacy that you design.

Beyond your all-important donations, the relationship you share with the university is meaningful to so many. Your friendship encourages our faculty and staff, helps students feel welcome here, cheers on our athletic teams and connects us to the community we serve.

From the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute and enrichment programs for local school children to students on the quad and in the library to community concerts and Arts Fest, your gifts create a more vibrant university for all to enjoy. 

Thank you for investing in UNC Asheville, so we can invest in our students and our community. Your friendship means the world, and can change the world!
