Congratulations on reaching the final stretch of your college journey!

Although your journey at UNCP is ending, you will now become a lifelong UNCP alumna or alumnus. As you prepare to embark on the next chapter of your lives, we invite you to make your graduation even more meaningful by making a small gift in honor of your accomplishment--and help future Braves get there from here.

Graduating students who make a gift of $18.87 (founding year for UNCP) or their class year (for example, $20.24) will be eligible to wear a special alumni philanthropy cord during Commencement to recognize your commitment to giving back. 

Getting your cord is very simple:

1. Make a gift of $18.87 (founding year) or $20.24 (class year)

2. Save your confirmation email/receipt

3. Pick up options are listed below.

Stand out in the crowd and be recognized for your commitment to philanthropy during the commencement ceremony. If you have questions, contact the Director of Alumni Affairs, Dr. Rebekah Lowry at or 910-521-6333.

Philanthropy cords can be picked up during Grad Finale March 13-14.
