Each sports program at Carolina has its own “friends” account and operating endowment. Sports Operating Endowments allow donors to help individual teams achieve the flexibility and autonomy they need to take advantage of unique opportunities in their sport and to sustain their programs for many years to come. The yield from these endowments, which is typically 5% annually, is made available to the coach to help meet specific needs not covered in the regular operating budget. Donations to “friends” accounts provide an immediate increase to coaches’ operating budgets with present day funds to use at their discretion. Sports with active capital projects are also linked below.
