The Students First Campaign nears completion more than
$10 million over final goal

When the Students First Campaign concludes on June 30, 2009, UNCG will mark its most successful fundraising initiative ever. Currently, donations total more than $114 million – more than $30 million over the university’s initial goal of $78.2 million. Thanks to the generosity of donors from throughout the nation, UNCG significantly surpassed the $100 million mark with contributions funding a wide variety of imperatives. Supporters created 154 new program funds, 13 professorships, 40 graduate scholarships and 196 additional undergraduate scholarships. The largest donation came from an anonymous donor who gave $6 million, $5 million of which was directed to scholarship funds and $1 million to faculty support. Other top donors included Rebecca Lloyd, who gave $4 million to establish the Aubrey Paul and Georgia Garrison Lloyd International Honors College, and Robert McDowell and Lissa Shelley McDowell ’68, who contributed $3.85 million to create the McDowell Research Center for Global IT Management and to support Communication Across the Curriculum.
