Thank you for your interest in supporting the Department of Genetics. In recent years, our department has seen its share of financial challenges – such as state budget cuts that have made it increasingly more difficult to meet the demands of our department. Despite these challenges, we are working hard to maintain and improve our programs. We need additional support for our seminar programs, scientific research forums, and networking events for our student and postdoctoral trainees. We also need support to fund our student and postdoctoral stipends and named endowed professorships, to help us spread our grant research dollars farther and to maintain our outstanding educational and research programs.

Your gifts are tax deductible, and importantly, highly appreciated — thank you for your generosity!

There are a number of ways individuals or organizations may give to the Department.

ONLINE – UNC’s online giving portal is a secure and convenient way to donate to our general fund and provide gifts that make a real impact on our program. Click on the link below to make a gift now.
