Support NC State
Our Campaign sets big, bold goals for NC State. We need your help to reach them.Give Now
The Think and Do the Extraordinary Campaign is the most ambitious fundraising effort in the history of NC State, with a goal of $1.6 billion in private support from the university’s remarkable alumni and friends.
Meeting this goal will allow NC State to achieve its potential as one of the most vital and prestigious research universities on the planet.
The Campaign was launched publicly on Oct. 28, 2016. Its goal must be met or exceeded before its conclusion on Dec. 31, 2021. To ensure that happens, NC State needs you.
Our university was founded with a mission: to create economic, societal and intellectual prosperity for the people of North Carolina and the United States. Our Campaign will empower us to deliver on and exceed that mission — today, tomorrow and far into the future.
By the close of the Campaign, NC State will:
- Offer our 34,000-plus students more high-impact educational opportunities both inside and outside the classroom
- Increase the number of scholarships and fellowships for students
- Grow our faculty, providing support through endowed professorships
- Increase the annual contribution to the statewide economy through our research advances and innovative technologies
- Have a more robust endowment to better position NC State for generations to come
Every keen and curious mind deserves a superior education. We’re committed to finding deserving students, nurturing them and sending them forth as outstanding graduates who give back to their communities and the wider world. Your support will provide extraordinary opportunities for North Carolinians and help us attract the best and brightest to our state.
We unite the world’s top faculty with leaders from industry and government, and we task them with solving the grand challenges. Together, they think and do the extraordinary. Your investment will help our faculty create new approaches to teaching and learning, fuel breakthroughs, grow industries and guide our students toward shining futures.
NC State’s physical footprint — built brick by brick — is as bold as the university’s spirit. Through projects such as Centennial Campus, Hunt Library and Talley Student Union, our campus has emerged as a global model. With your help, we can ensure that future infrastructure will match the ambitions of the thinkers and doers who make use of it.
At NC State, discovery and learning take place across fields, disciplines and programs. Through hands-on experiences — including internships, study abroad and service learning; a world-class library system; and thriving arts, social, athletics and cultural programs — our students enjoy the pinnacle of education. Your support will take them even higher.
NC State has long been committed to serving North Carolina and its citizens through applied innovation that generates solutions and fuels prosperity. Your investment will strengthen our leadership and vision, helping us to meet today’s grand challenges — in security, health, food systems, energy, the environment and social well-being — and to solve them.
