Why Give

For our students. For our community. For our world.

As a donor to UNC Asheville, you make students’ dreams possible, the university greater and our community stronger.

UNC Asheville is one of the nation’s top-ranked public liberal arts universities and the only dedicated liberal arts institution in the University of North Carolina system. Each year, more than 3,700 undergraduate students come to this culturally dynamic setting to challenge themselves intellectually and creatively, and to connect to each other and the larger community. A UNC Asheville education inspires students to become trailblazers and lifelong learners, and provides them with the critical thinking, workforce, and community service skills they need to thrive in life.  

It’s your gift that helps fund a scholarship for a well-deserving student who would not be able to experience a UNC Asheville education otherwise.

It’s your gift that helps support UNC Asheville’s nationally-recognized undergraduate research program, which boasts a 68% participation rate.

It’s your gift that helps UNC Asheville’s extraordinary centers, institutes and programs enhance the well-being of our area and its people.

It’s your gift that helps UNC Asheville achieve its mission to set the standard of excellence in public liberal arts education and become a model of environmental, economic and social sustainability.
