It was a record year for UNC Greensboro’s 48-hour Believe in the G giving campaign.
More than 1,100 Spartans raised over $517,000 for 316 funds across campus – and the gifts keep coming in.
“Thank you to the many students, alumni, faculty, staff, parents and friends that came together to celebrate all that makes UNCG special during our annual Believe in the G event,” said Michelle R. Doebler ’09, director of annual giving. “These gifts will support educational access for students and a vibrant learning experience for all. Thank you for believing in the university!”
Alumni attended seven regional networking events across the state and beyond, and the campaign garnered 1.8 million social media impressions.

I #BelieveInTheG because I’ve gotten to meet so many incredible people at this school and I’ve been able to get involved in various campus activities. I absolutely love this school and couldn’t see myself anywhere else. 💙💛 pic.twitter.com/ahA7bhb8Jh
