How to Give

There are many ways to make a gift to UNC Asheville. Whether you choose to make an annual gift or give to an endowment fund, your contribution may take many forms.  

You may choose to make your gift in cash (via check or a credit card) or cash equivalents (such as shares of stock), either as a one-time donation or through a pledge you will fulfill over a period of years. You may also make a planned gift through your estate, IRA or an insurance policy, in order to provide a wonderful legacy to meet the needs of future UNC Asheville students and create maximum benefit for you and your loved ones. Perhaps your employer or a business you serve as a board member offers a matching gift program, wherein the business will match your gift to UNC Asheville. However you choose to give, please know that your gifts matter greatly to our students, our faculty, and our community.

We want to make it easy for you to make your generous gifts. We offer a variety of giving methods so you can choose the one that best meets your needs.
