YOU CAN PROVIDE SUPPORT TO CAROLINA ATHLETICS IN A VARIETY OF WAYS.
In addition to being an active member by participating in the Annual Fund or with a Scholarship Endowment, you can also give directly to facilities projects and team support.
Additionally, members can make an impact beyond their lifetime with an estate/planned gift. By including Carolina Athletics in your estate planning, you can ensure the future success of Carolina student-athletes while enjoying benefits now or benefits for your heirs.
PROVIDE A LEGACY OF SUPPORT.
Over 800 student-athletes demonstrate a high level of commitment to achieve success across 28 teams at Carolina. A dedicated commitment from the Carolina faithful is also required to bring the best student-athletes in the country to Chapel Hill. Donors to the Scholarship Trust provide critical, long-term support for Carolina's athletic scholarship program. Scholarship donors provide an income stream in perpetuity that will continue to support Carolina student-athletes for years to come.
During the 50th anniversary year of the Scholarship Endowment, Carolina celebrates five decades of generous and sustained support. Carolina also looks forward to securing the next 50 years with a goal to raise new scholarship funding and to fully endow the student-athlete scholarship program, all as part of the Campaign for Carolina Athletics.
WORLD-CLASS STUDENT-ATHLETES NEED
Rams Club members also play a pivotal role in providing the world-class student-athletes at Carolina with world-class facilities in which to prepare and compete for championships.
As part of the Campaign for Carolina Athletics, The Rams Club is underway with four important facility projects that directly impact 12 of Carolina’s 28 sports, and will benefit every student-athlete at Carolina:
TEAM SUPPORT HELPS MEET UNIQUE NEEDS OF OUR PROGRAMS.
Team support encompasses gifts to any of Carolina’s individual athletic program operating endowments, friends accounts, and the Richard A. Baddour Carolina Leadership Academy.
Each sports program at Carolina has its own sports operating endowment. The yield from these endowments is made available to the coach to help meet specific needs not covered in the regular operating budget. While the overall campaign is focused on meeting the needs of all 28 teams, the Sports Operating Endowments allow donors to help individual sports programs to achieve the flexibility and autonomy they need to take advantage of unique opportunities in their sport.
Donors to Sports Operating Endowments provide coaches with the ability to make decisions that can affect their program in the near-term with their legacy gift. Each sport has its own endowment and goal for funding. For more information on sport endowments or to make a gift to specific sport, please contact The Rams Club at 919.843.2000.
Note: Gifts to sport endowments do not activate Rams Club benefits as with Annual Fund or Scholarship Endowment Trust gifts. Priority points are accumulated, however, and become active with the activation of a regular Rams Club membership.
