ALL STUDENT GIFTS ARE BEING MATCHED 5:1
That means that if you make a gift of just $10 to any area of campus, a generous donor will give $50 to the same fund! And if every student gave just $10, we'd be able to raise $1,808,760 for current and future 49ers!
By making a gift, you are investing in other 49er students. You will be paying it forward because of support from Niners (alumni and students) who paved the way for you.
CALLING ALL SENIORS!
Since your gift is being matched 5:1 by UNC Charlotte Alumnus Gene Johnson, make your Class Gift to any area on campus by Friday, April 9th in order to personalize a brick for just $10/$25!

The brick walkway is located between Cameron Boulevard and the football stadium. 49er Way – one of the most traversed and photographed routes on campus – it's the path the Charlotte 49ers football team, band, and fans take during home football games.
Seniors: We have been challenged to reach 449 donors. If we reach our goal, we will get an emblem placed along Niner Walk near the stadium dedicated to the class of 2021.

Leave your Legacy on Campus
This year, the Class of 2021 is staking their claim through a brick campaign to benefit Student Success initiatives, including the Student Emergency Fund, Jamil Niner Student Pantry, and the Alumni Scholarship for Social Justice. Every gift of $49 or more, made by or on behalf of a graduating senior, will be honored with a personalized brick in 49er Way. We need your help in donating to this fund!
The UNC Charlotte Student Emergency Fund helps current students by providing financial support when they need assistance with unexpected, unforeseen, and unavoidable emergency expenses, including pandemics. Your support of the Class Gift gives fellow 49ers a future to believe in.
The Jamil Niner Student Pantry provides assistance to UNC Charlotte students who struggle with food insecurities, helping ensure that every student has access to nutritious food. A contribution of $50 to the Jamil Niner Food Pantry will provide seven lunches and a $100 donation will feed one student dinner all week.
The UNC Charlotte Alumni Association Scholarship for Social Justice was created to support and uplift current students engaged in social action, racial justice and economic efforts in their communities. The fund provides annual support to returning undergraduate students with demonstrated financial need, potential for academic success in their chosen program of study, and a record of service or social action either at UNC Charlotte, in the greater Charlotte community or in the student’s hometown.
