Become a Friend

Private funds are essential for the Institute to fulfill our mission of faculty enrichment and to continue to serve as an intellectual crossroads at Carolina. We could not do what we do without expendable gifts to our “Friends of the Institute” fund (107266), the annual fund for general support of the Institute for the Arts and Humanities.

Established in 1992 by a core group of supporters, the Friends of the Institute fund now numbers more than 600 individual members and families.

A gift of any amount is appreciated to the Friends of the Institute. The IAH recognizes giving levels for all size donations. In addition, an annual gift of $1,500 or more admits the donor to the College of Arts and Science’s Dean’s Club. Annual gifts of $2,000 or more admit the donor to the University’s Chancellor’s Club.

Gifts of all levels help strengthen IAH programs and help us to fulfill our mission of supporting and honoring outstanding UNC faculty. We appreciate every gift we receive. Click here for more information about our giving levels.
