UNCW's Give 24 in 24 Challenge is going on now


WILMINGTON, NC (NEWS RELEASE) -- The goal of the challenge is to raise $24,000 in 24 hours.

If this goal is reached, UNCW will receive a $24,000 gift for scholarships. Alumni, parents, faculty, staff, students and friends are encouraged to participate by making a gift to any area of the university.


Over 70% of UNCW students receive some type of financial assistance which is why scholarships remain a top fundraising priority for the university.

A $24,000 gift would make a significant impact in helping UNCW recruit the best and brightest students, regardless of their financial circumstances. Will you help?

While repeating the fluff stories about UNCW, this important first amendment story gets buried....why?

Pony up Buzz!

Instead of trying to rob the pockets of the staff and students here at UNCW (notice I didn't say faculty), why doesn't Buzz Peterson pony up the first $24,000? The university is certainly paying him enough to leave due to poor performance. The staff hasn't seen a real raise in years and yet we are constantly asked to give and give more. We are sick of it!!
