UNCW chancellor to match donations from graduating students

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Seniors graduating this year from UNCW have the chance to make their chancellor pay up.

Chancellor Zito Sartarelli has started a new gift giving initiative called the Chancellor’s Challenge. He will match gifts to the university, dollar for dollar.

The matching funds will support scholarships across campus.

Students can support any college, academic program, scholarship or athletic team that is meaningful to them. The challenge is also open to master’s and doctoral students who will receive their degrees during the 2017-18 academic year.

The challenge is a part of the UNCW 2017-18 Senior Class Giving Campaign, which runs through June 30.


“It is my hope this challenge will inspire future graduates to give back and help increase alumni participation,” said Chancellor Sartarelli. “The gift, whatever its size, will make a huge difference to new generations of Seahawks.”

Students who participate in the Chancellor’s Challenge with a gift of $20.17 or more before December 3 will be eligible for a VIP parking pass to commencement (limited to the first 250), a commemorative glass and an invitation to the Senior Toast.
