UNCW Campus Dining has "come to the table" with a $30,000 challenge gift to encourage young alumni participation. Any graduate from 2002-2012 will have their gift to UNCW matched dollar for dollar up to $50, but that's not all!

Any young alumni that makes a gift before January 28, 2013will be entered in a drawing to have a sandwich on campus named after them. The winning sandwich will be served at The Landing, UNCW's most popular sandwich shop.

This unique naming opportunity demonstrates that you don't have to give a fortune in order to leave a lasting legacy at your alma mater. All donors are heroes for the next generation of Seahawks. If you would like to give to Athletics we are under the name Student Aid Association. Any gift you make will have an impact on UNCW's continued quest to sustain and grow this great University.  Click the link below to donate now.
