Ways to give to the NC State Engineering Foundation

Would you like to help the College continue to provide world-class engineering education and relevant, cutting-edge research? Here are some giving options:

Annual Giving: Annual gifts to the College are generally for an unrestricted purpose. Gifts of more than $1,000 qualify for membership in the Dean’s Circle. Annual gifts from alumni are measured as “participation rate” and directly affect national rankings.

Endowment: An endowment is a fund held in perpetuity that benefits a specific purpose. Most endowments held by the Engineering Foundation are either for scholarships or endowed faculty positions.

Planned Giving: Planned gifts can be as simple as a bequest (including us in your estate plans). Other options include trust vehicles and annuities, which have the potential to provide an income stream and significant tax benefits.

Capital Gifts: These gifts go toward “bricks and mortar” projects. Donors are given “naming opportunities.” Opportunities include the planned Engineering Oval building and other engineering buildings on Centennial Campus.

In-Kind Gifts: These are gifts of goods or services to the College at a discount or no cost.

Special Gifts: These gifts are directed to unique projects, centers or initiatives as directed and approved by the dean of engineering.
