Since 1985, the Parents Council Grants Program has awarded nearly $2 million in grant funding to enhance the quality of undergraduate student life and learning at Carolina. University staples such as FallFest and SafeWalk got their start from PC Grants. By funding UNC student organizations and university offices to create new and innovative programs and events that benefit undergraduate students, the Parents Council has uniquely positioned itself to have a significant impact at Carolina. Council families are asked to make a minimum annual gift of $1,250 to support this initiative. Last year, 18 programs received awards totaling more than $45,000.
