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.

A chart breaking down the $1.6 billion goal for the campaign: $800 million will go toward endowment (supporting scholarships, fellowships, faculty and program); $200 million toward facilities; and $600 million toward current operations.

The Extraordinary

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
