Give to the School

No matter what area of the school you support, you're impacting our students -- and they're grateful!

Contributions to the DFNC Unrestricted Fund go to support student activities, like the American Student Dental Association!

Thanks to the support from the school’s alumni and friends, the UNC School of Dentistry is able to maintain some of the nation’s best dental education facilities, attract some of the nation’s best students, and retain some of the nation’s best faculty and staff.

Unfortunately, the school’s dependence on the private contributions of its alumni and friends continues to grow each year.

Donations to the Dental Foundation of North Carolina benefit the UNC School of Dentistry in numerous ways: student scholarships, research fellowships, travel awards, faculty professorships, facility upgrades, and many more, including the School of Dentistry Advancement Fund, which assists in the greatest and most urgent areas of need.

The UNC School of Dentistry is grateful for the support of its alumni and friends. Please contact the Office of Advancement at (919) 537-3257 for more information about giving options.
