Charlie Patterson passed away on Friday, March 24.
He served as vice chancellor for development at UNCG from 1974 to 1984, says Wilson Davis, former director, Office of Information Services at UNCG.
“Charlie Patterson provided leadership for UNCG’s first capital campaign, the Prospectus III Campaign, which raised $13.5 million in 1984.” He noted that Patterson’s work laid the fundraising foundation for two other highly successful capital campaigns in subsequent decades.
“Charlie was widely recognized by his peers as a highly gifted fundraiser – at UNCG and later at Wake Forest University and Guilford College. Beyond that, he was a wonderful human being and will be greatly missed by his many friends.”
