Central Major Gifts

The mission of Central Major Gifts at NC State is to plan, coordinate and complete university-wide fundraising initiatives and support campus programs and partners. We do this by strengthening relationships with alumni and friends and connecting them with campus; reaching out to alumni and friends living out-of-state to carry the messages of NC State’s progress, success and vision for the future; serving as liaisons to university-wide programs to support their fundraising and outreach efforts; and partnering with the Office of Annual Giving, the Office of Gift Planning and the Office of Corporate & Foundation Relations.

Meet the Team

Working side-by-side with college and program development officers, the Alumni Association, and the Wolfpack Club, the Central Major Gifts Team visits alumni, parents and friends across the country to forge and strengthen relationships and promote loyalty to NC State, its colleges and university-wide efforts including special projects which serve the entire campus community. Let us bring NC State to you!
