Giving Beyond Your Own Lifetime


Endowments are the bulwark for everything UNC Eye must do:  recruit the best students and faculty, generate trailblazing research, and work for a better world.  By generating a steady stream of income while leaving the principal untouched, endowments make it possible for UNC Eye to respond to unforeseen opportunities.

Establish an endowment in your name or contribute to one already established:

  • Arthur C. Chandler, M.D. Endowment Fund - Supports residents and teaching programs.
  • Kenneth L. Cohen, M.D. Endowment Fund - Supports primarily international eye care services working through ORBIS and provides support for residents to participate in the education.
  • David E. Eifrig, M.D. Endowment Fund - Supports an annual lectureship for continuing education.
  • Samuel D. McPherson, M.D. Endowment Fund - Supports the residency program.

Create your own endowment by contacting the Development Director, Sandy W. Scarlett at or call (919) 843-1299.
