Below you will find answers to many common questions about Believe in the G 2023.
What is Believe in the G?
UNCG's annual day of giving is when everyone connected to UNCG comes together to show Spartan spirit, support what they love best about UNCG, and invest in its future. Special challenges mean that your gift can go further and do more good than at any other time of the year!
When is Believe in the G?
Believe in the G starts at 7:00am on Tuesday, March 14 and goes through 2:00pm on Wednesday, March 15. That's 1,891 minutes to make an impact!
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 for outstanding faculty and staff.
Your philanthropic support is a vote of confidence in the educational experience provided by UNCG. If you are an alumnus, 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 alumni make 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.
