Major Gifts: Annual Giving, Endowments, Matching Gifts, and Planned Gifts

If you’re considering making a significant donation or bequest, please call or email to discuss with Sherine Obare, Dean, Joint School of Nanoscience and Nanoengineering, and Professor of Nanoscience.

Annual Giving

Your annual gift supports the greatest needs of the Joint School of Nanoscience & Nanoengineering, individual departments, and programs. There is no gift too large or too small!


Gifts of $15,000 or more can transform the lives of our students and faculty by providing access to scholarships, financial support, research, experiential education, leadership opportunities, and more. Naming endowments and other funds begin at this level. These gifts may be pledged and fulfilled over a period of years.

Your endowment gift becomes part of the larger UNCG endowment, allowing the principal to earn interest to support scholarships, program funds, professorships, and more. Because endowments are forever, the giver can give them an honorary name. Endowments may be established while you are living, or as part of your estate.

Matching Gifts

Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match any charitable contributions made by their employees, increasing the reach and impact of your gift to JSNN. To find out if your company has a matching gift policy, please search for your employer’s name through the Office of University Advancement’s webpage.

Planned Gifts

Leave a legacy at the Joint School of Nanoscience and Nanoengineering and change lives for generations to come. Financial or estate gifts allow you to make lasting impact now or beyond your lifetime, while bringing financial benefits for yourself and your family today.
