Located on South Campus between the SASB North and South, the UNC NPHC Legacy Plaza will create a positive environment for NPHC organizations to unite in efforts to promote their fraternities and sororities while educating students about the history of these diverse organizations.
About the UNC NPHC Legacy Plaza
The plaza will celebrate the nine National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC) fraternities and sororities at Carolina. These organizations have impacted UNC’s campus since the first organization arrived in 1973 with their commitment to civic engagement, leadership, academic achievement, and providing a sense of belonging for students. The garden comes to fruition as UNC NPHC celebrates its 48th anniversary on campus.
The fundraising campaign to raise the financial resources needed for the $750,000 project cost launched during Homecoming 2017, and the design was unveiled Homecoming 2018 as NPHC celebrated its 45th Anniversary at Carolina! This project is projected to take 17 ½ to 19 months once construction starts. Your support is critical, as this project is 100 percent dependent on alumni and other donor support.
Carolina has established several recognition societies to thank donors for their generosity. Your gift to the NPHC Legacy Plaza not only gets you recognized in the NPHC giving societies, but those of the University as well. Unless anonymity is requested, donors’ names are often listed in donor appreciation publications.
If you work for a company that has a matching gift program, you may be eligible to have your personal gift to Carolina matched. Corporate matching gifts are contributions from the corporation, and you will receive recognition credit for the amount of each matching gift received. Corporate matching gifts cannot be included in the amount of your personal pledge commitment to Carolina and cannot reduce your personal pledge. To find out if your company has a matching gift policy, please enter your employer’s name.
All donors will be recognized, based on their level of support to the plaza, in the Fraternity & Sorority Life office and in various publications.
Commemorative Brick Program
A commemorative brick program was established to engage NPHC alumni and friends to support and raise awareness and financial resources to build the garden. Donations can be made as a one-time payment or through 12-monthly installments. We encourage each individual NPHC alumni to purchase a brick or paver, each chapter line to purchase a paver and each NPHC chapter should have a paver representing the founding of their organization on campus. Options are a $500 4 x 8 Commemorative Engraved Brick or a $1,000 Commemorative Engraved Paver.
The goal is to ensure that current and future generations of the Carolina family and NPHC community understand the impact and appreciate the positive legacy that each organization has left on our beloved campus. All payments should be completed by April 30, 2021 to be included in the first round of installations. Orders can still be placed, but will be placed in the second round of installations.
For more information about buying a brick or directly supporting the project, please contact Director of Student Affairs Development Zack Hawkins at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (919)962-9077.
