Below you will find answers to many common questions about Believe in the G.
What is Believe in the G?
UNCG's largest giving day, when everyone connected to UNCG comes together to show Spartan spirit, support what they love best about UNCG, and invest in its future. Plus, the 24 hours are packed with tons of fun challenges and celebratory events for all to enjoy, making Believe in the G the perfect time to make your gift to UNCG!
When is Believe in the G?
Believe in the G is a 24-hour giving challenge that begins at noon on Thursday, March 4 and goes until noon on Friday, March 5.
Why should I give to Believe in the G?
Annual gifts go to work immediately to sustain university operations, enhance programs that serve to enrich the student experience, fund student scholarships and maintain a supportive environment of outstanding faculty and staff.
Your philanthropic support is a vote of confidence in the educational experience provided by UNCG. If you are an alum, your participation in annual giving can lift the university’s rankings in national polls, helping to increase the value of a UNCG degree. A strong, supportive community of alumni, parents, faculty, staff and friends also influences the amount of financial support the university receives from corporations and foundations.
Why is alumni giving so important?
Gifts of any size made to UNCG have the power to change the lives of all Spartans. Gifts from alumni are especially powerful because they do something else: they raise our national profile. US News & World Report and other publications take alumni giving into consideration when ranking colleges and universities, so when an alum makes a gift, they are also helping to increase our national rankings. A higher ranking makes a UNCG degree even more valuable, encourages prospective students to apply to UNCG and benefits all members of our Spartan community.
Can I give more than once or to more than one area?
Yes, you may choose to give as many times and to as many areas as you would like throughout the Believe in the G giving period.
Is it safe to give online?
Yes, it is indeed safe to make a gift online. UNCG is PCI compliant and takes significant measures to ensure all donor information is safe and secure.
Will my question be tax deductible?
UNCG is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization. Your gift qualifies for tax-deduction in accordance with IRS regulations during the calendar year that you make your gift. Consult your tax professional for more information.
How do I spread the word about Believe in the G?
Wear your blue and gold, and talk to anyone who will listen about the love you have for UNCG. Reach out directly to people in your network. Share early and often on social media using #BelieveintheG. Sign up to be a social media ambassador and find samples you can post on your own social media feeds. The more you share, the more people we will reach, and the greater the impact we will have on the university!
