UNC Asheville exceeded the goal of $75,000 (by 123%), including unlocking a $15,000 challenge gift from one very proud and generous alum.

From 12-1PM, we were live on Facebook with host Wiley Cash ‘00 and special guests. Thanks to the generosity of alumna Patty Higgins ‘75, every dollar raised for scholarships was matched dollar for dollar up to $5,000. Over the course of an hour, more than $8,500 were raised for students.

Additionally, the Ideas to Action initiative, which helps students build businesses and change the world through social entrepreneurship, received a $15,000 gift from Asheville community member, Roger Nelson.Thank you to everyone who made a gift! Your generosity makes a difference on our campus for all students, each and every day. UNC Asheville would not be the incredible place that it is without people like you.
