Make a Gift
Your support helps shape the designers of tomorrow.
On October 28, 2016, NC State University launched its most ambitious fundraising campaign in its history, Think and Do the Extraordinary: The Campaign for NC State. This five-year comprehensive campaign aims to raise $1.6 billion to propel NC State forward. The College of Design’s initial goal is to raise $13 million toward the overarching fundraising priorities including scholarships, fellowships, endowed professorships and unrestricted giving. For more information about the college’s campaign priorities please visit our campaign page.
Donors have a significant impact on design education.
- This academic year, thanks to the generous support of private donors, the College was able to award 50 scholarships and fellowships to 60 outstanding students totaling almost $167,000. These awards enable the college to recruit and retain the best and the brightest students and it makes a design education possible for students who may not otherwise be able to afford a college degree.
- Private gifts and endowments provided the funding to bring in outstanding guest lecturers. More than 40 speakers visited the college last year, providing guidance and inspiration for students, faculty, and staff.
- Other gifts made possible students’ dreams to study abroad or explore a special area of interest or research.
Collectively, support provided by donors creates an enriched learning experience and raises the profile of the College of Design.
